Michigan: The first online poker sites will most likely enter the market in 2020

April 28, 2020

Picking up in the fight against prohibition of online gambling, Michigan became the sixth state to legalize online poker, which means that they will soon regulate online poker. Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed the compromise and approved it based on the support of the vast majority. Many casino magnates like Sheldon Adelson hate the legalization of online gambling because of how it siphons cash away from their own profits, but none can give a legitimate and believable reason for why they shouldn't legalize online gambling. The only reason Sheldon Adelson opposes it is because of how his own online casino failed.

Winning Ground Inch by Inch

In some cases, you don't win battles through taking a lot of ground all at once. In fact, you have cases where you win territory through taking it one inch at a time. First, the Wolverine state legalized online sports betting. Now that they won territory there, they decided to go after a bill to legalize online poker. Across the nation, 20 states have approved legalization of online sports betting. We have had a year of terrific growth. The revenue generated from this new venue will get directed toward education and making public schools better.

When Does It Start?

Before online poker gets implemented, it will take some time before they put this new bill into action. The first sites will most likely enter the market in 2020. Legislature plans to limit the gambling licenses to the 26 land-based casinos. Michigan has 23 tribal gambling establishments and three commercial operations close to Detroit. While not all of the casinos in the state of Michigan allow for poker, all of them will have the chance to apply for a license in the state. Each casino can only open one casino brand, which will limit the amount of confusion and ease regulation. It remains unclear if all brands will share resemblances or if they will keep a distinct personality from the others.

The legalization of online poker in Michigan spells good news for the United States as a whole. Slowly but surely, we have begun to gain ground against prohibition. Many forces, such as Sheldon Adelson would like to stop it from happening, but it seems that even big money can't stop what the majority want. In the coming years, we will most likely see a continued swing in this direction where many more states will follow in this direction. The vast majority already seems to want it.
