Which state is better for gambling?
Michigan has been a pioneer in legalizing sports betting in the form of sportsbooks, but the state is looking to take it to the next level, with a bill that would allow casinos to open up a betting lane to gamblers in Michigan.
The Michigan Gaming Commission is looking at bills that would add a gambling lane on Sundays in the state, and they’ve recently passed the first bill that they’ve brought to the governor’s desk.
According to the Associated Press, a bill passed by the state’s House Judiciary Committee last month would allow gamblers to gamble at a state-operated casino with an electronic tab on a mobile device.
That’s not a big deal, but it’s an important step.
It’s a big step in the right direction for Michigan.
With sportsbooks opening up to gamers, there are now more options for sports betting, especially in Michigan where gambling is already legal.
According the AP, the bill is expected to be passed on Thursday.
The bill will require the casino to be in a county where it operates a sportsbook, and if it’s located in a city, the casino must have a building that houses a sports bar.
The gambling lane could be available to sports bettors in the city of Detroit, which currently has only one sportsbook.
The legislation would also create a statewide sports gambling commission, a task force that would work to implement sports betting regulations.
It could be a long road to getting this bill passed, but if it does, the state could be looking at a lot more gambling options than just casinos.
