2018 should have been the year of progress of the “Lawful Internet Gaming Act” but it was not to be. Just days before the 2019 new year, the Act got vetoed by the then sitting Governor Rick Snyder just days before he left office—despite having passed all other legislative hurdles.

Rep. Brandt Iden who was a sponsor of the bill still plans to move the online gaming bill forward despite the major set back. “The veto pen came out for my entire gaming package, which is incredibly disappointing,” said Brandt Iden at the time of the Governors decision.

We will update this page as and when more information surrounding the bill and its progress is released, but you can read all of our coverage on the matter thus far, below.
