Michigan Online Gaming

In February 2013, the Michigan Lottery began exploring plans to sell lottery tickets online. Mega Millions and Powerball subscriptions would have been sold online. Other games were not initially included. Gov. Rick Snyder included sales from the "iLottery" program in his budget proposal.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette argued it would increase problem gambling and hurt convenience stores. Both the Michigan House and Senate have introduced bills that ban the sale of lottery tickets online.

In June 2013, Snyder dropped the "iLottery" sales from his budget and the Michigan Lottery announced it was halting plans to sell tickets over the Internet. But "iLottery" launched again in 2014 after contracting with Canadian-based Pollard Banknote Ltd. and NeoGames to build and manage the system at an estimated cost of $23.2 million.

In April 2016, Senator Mike Kowall introduced the Lawful Internet Gaming Act, SB 889, a bill that would regulate and legalize online gambling in the state.

On 8 March 2017, Senate Bill 203, The Lawful Internet Gaming Act, was passed by the state's Senate Regulatory Reform Committee by a 7-1 vote. The bill, which includes provisions for consumer protections and battling illegal gambling, faces further consideration in the Senate.
