Michigan can legalize online poker before Christmas holidays
Online poker players from Michigan can find a nice gift under the tree. Curtis Hertel, who is a Senator of Michigan, stated about his plan to give the governor a draft law concerning the legalization of online poker before Christmas holidays.
According to Curtis’ words, the draft law will be submitted to the committee meeting next week. In the case of adopting the law, the poker rooms, as well as sports betting and online casinos will be available in Michigan.
However, the poker operators which don’t have a partnership with brick and mortar casinos will need a partnership with a licensee in order to offer their games in the state. The casinos will pay tax from 8% to 23% depending from the income. The licenses will cost $100 000 and $50 000 for annual renewal.
