Mobile sports betting could be live within days
DETROIT — Richard Kalm, executive director of the Michigan Gaming Control Board, said during Tuesday’s monthly board meeting that the launch of online betting in Michigan is coming “in a few days.”
Kalm said an announcement could come as early as Tuesday afternoon or any day up until to Jan. 19 regarding approved operators. After that comes testing, which would result in a few day delay until operators actually begin accepting wagers. The minimum age for online sports betting is 21.
“I’m cautiously optimistic we’re going to have something this week or the very first part of next week to relay to the public,” Kalm said. “I know it seems slow to the public, but from our perspective, the regulatory perspective, we just cannot launch new types of gaming until we have rules in place to protect the integrity of that gaming.”
Turtle Creek and Leelanau Sands Casino offer sportsbooks through William Hill, which is currently approved for Michigan’s mobile betting licenses.
