As of now, the Key Michigan Senate Committee has placed in new online and retail gaming bills, beginning since Tuesday and continuing in legislation. This is said to be one of the biggest steps taken by the nation when it comes to placing new regulations of online gambling within their jurisdiction. Discussions into the manner will take place in the House of Government within Michigan itself. Further matters will be taken directly to the government desk later in the month.
A total of 10 gaming measures will be activated upon the end of the discussions. Nine of them have already been agreed upon unanimously. Once the full procedure has been taken place, this will mark Michigan as the first state in the U.S. to take almost every act of Gambling and gaming regulation into effect, including those of commercial and Native American casinos.
What this will mean for casinos, in general, will be the access to better services for their companies. For example, sports betting, online casinos, internet poker will all be fully regulated and given full authorisation. While other states surely have all of these services, Michigan will gain full and complete access to ALL of them, granting them the benefit of gaining huge target audiences.
As much as this sounds like good news for gaming lovers, many more steps must still be taken into consideration if the chance for this procedure to go fully prepared. This will include a majority vote by the Senate, reconciliation with the committee and other forms of government and the official signature of the government to give their full consent to the new bills.
The bottom line is that while things are certainly looking up, casino gamers should keep their minds open for the possibility of this may not happen. However, many backers of the new bills show complete confidence.
