Legalized sports betting in Michigan takes step forward

Legalized sports betting in Michigan took a step forward after the state Senate approved legislation that would allow online casino gaming in the state.

The bill, which needs approval from the Governor, notably includes provisions for internet sports betting.

It allows people aged 21 over to register with one of Michigan’s three casinos in Detroit and 23 tribal casinos across the state and gamble from their websites.

If approved, Michigan would become the fifth state in the US to legalize online gambling, following Delaware, New Jersey, Nevada and Pennsylvania.
