The US state of Michigan could be the next to allow legalized online gambling following in the footsteps of Nevada, Delaware, New Jersey and, more recently, Pennsylvania. 

CardPlayer.com reported that legislation drafted by Republican State Rep. Brandt Iden cleared a key committee vote on Wednesday morning.

From CardPlayer.com:

According to the Michigan House Regulatory Reform Committee, the legislation, HB 4926, now sits on the House floor for consideration. A successful vote there would ship the legislation over to the Senate and possibly to the governor’s desk thereafter, according to a clerk with the Regulatory Reform Committee.

Card Player learned that the measure could be voted on by end-of-day Thursday, but it’s likely that it will have to wait until 2018. “It’s most likely not going to be passed out of the House this year, but it’s still possible,” the committee clerk said.

The bills would legalize online casino games and poker in the state.
