The state of Michigan came close to allowing online poker rooms to be based within its borders but the outgoing Governor vetoed a bill in the waning hours of 2018.  Residents here can still play at internationally licensed Web card rooms like Americas Cardroom.


Michigan lawmakers are anxious to take up the issue of legal Internet poker once again with a new Governor who seems to be supportive of both the Web poker and sports betting sectors operating from within the state.

Michigan law does not specifically prohibit the use of Internet to violate its gambling laws, but state officials would certainly like to reap the benefits from taxation and licensing fees.
