Michigan allows interstate online poker competitions
The Michigan Gaming Control Board has signed an agreement that allows Michigan online poker players to compete across state lines. Michigan joins Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey as a member of the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement.
Michigan Gaming Control Board executive director Henry Williams said: “I am happy to announce Michigan has joined the multistate poker compact, and much of the increased tax revenue from multistate poker will go to support K-12 education in Michigan. By joining, Michigan will almost double the potential pool of participants in multistate poker games.
