US.- AGS has announced that it has obtained a provisional igaming supplier licence from the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB).

The Las Vegas-based gaming developer and manufacturer will be able to supply its game content to licensed online casino operators in Michigan once igaming goes live in the state.

The MGCB has said that sports betting and igaming may not launch in Michigan until the new year. It has already approved 15 operating licences.

AGS will offer its land-based game content to licensed online operators in the state through its remote gaming server.

AGS Executive Vice President Matt Reback said: “We are excited about being awarded our provisional iGaming license in Michigan and look forward to helping the state launch its new iGaming program.

“We are confident that Michigan is going to be a strong market for us, with three commercial casinos that cater to a repeat player base, and player familiarity with AGS games due to the popularity and longevity of our land-based games in the Michigan market.”

Meanwhile, Michigan’s gaming industry continues to struggle with coronavirus restrictions. In November, casinos were ordered to close for three weeks by Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s administration.
