This Week in Gambling: Online gambling and poker in Michigan

J. Todd kicks off the New Year with gambling news from Las Vegas, as well as California, Michigan and New York State. Also, there is a new World Series of Poker champion.

For the 51st consecutive year, the World Series of Poker Main event Championship crowned a winner on January 3rd, 2021, at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas. International champ Damian Salas of Argentina played head-to-head in a first-of-its-kind showdown against U.S. champion Joseph Hebert of Louisiana.

The Gaming Control Board has announced that they expect online gambling in Michigan will be live by the middle of this month. The Governor signed legislation which legalized sports gambling in the state late in 2019. Michigan online gaming, however, had to establish it’s own regulations and licensing.

In a major development for the poker community, a Michigan interstate online poker bill now sits on the Governor’s desk ready to be signed into law. If you don’t understand why this is so significant, then focus on the word “interstate”.
