Online poker is yet to come to the state of Michigan, but there is still hope that legalization for online gaming will come to pass. In early May 2018 it was announced that an igaming bill will be brought back to the Michigan House floor by Rep. Brandt Iden in hope to move towards bringing online gaming to the state.

MGM Grand Detroit, Greektown Casino and MotorCity Casino, all land-based commercial casinos in Detroit have already lent their support to the bill. However, the 12 Native American Tribes whose votes are crucial for the bill to pass have yet to give their support to the bill.

We will update this page as and when more information surrounding the bill and its progress is released.
