MGCB Begins to Accept Online Gaming and Internet Sports Betting License Applications



The Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) has begun accepting internet gaming and internet sports betting license applications from commercial casinos and tribes in Michigan.

The MGCB also began to accept vendor registration applications from firms supporting the operators and suppliers.

“The MGCB continues to make progress toward the launch of online gaming by adding forms for operators and vendors. Operators should file applications soon so we can conduct investigations and work with them on internal controls, technical standards, lab certifications and other requirements. In addition, the operators and suppliers should encourage their vendors to complete and submit registration forms,” Richard S. Kalm, executive director of MGCB, said.

The forms and related information can be found in the agency’s Internet Gaming and Fantasy Contests section. Website visitors can find a link to the section in the ribbon at the top of the agency’s homepage.

“We expect to launch internet gaming and online sports betting by late 2020 or early 2021. It’s more likely all participants will be prepared and qualified for launch if the MGCB receives timely applications,” Kalm said.
