Christmas came early for poker players in Michigan. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a gambling expansion package into law before the holiday break, authorizing online poker, casino games, and sports betting.
The Wolverine State moves into the “pending launch” category alongside West Virginia, which also authorized a similar online expansion in 2019.
Meanwhile, New Jersey online gambling keeps churning out records. Casino and poker operators won nearly $50 million in November, backed up by almost $28 million from online sports betting.
The Pennsylvania market is still young, but PA online gambling revenue is trending favorably in these early days too.
Our coverage spans regulatory updates, legislative developments, market analysis, and day-to-day news that may be of interest not only to those following the markets, but also online poker players who participate in them.
Online Gambling Regulation in America
Along with specific coverage of online poker, we also explore the broader topic of online gambling regulation in the United States, including casino and lottery games.
Recently, we have started to expand our coverage beyond the U.S. into the global market for online poker, including jurisdictions such as the UK’s regulated online poker market. We made this decision as the leading companies involved in one market increasingly started to mirror companies in another, and as the innovations from – and the challenges facing – the international online poker market became increasingly relevant for the American online poker industry as well.
