Mobile horse race betting to launch in Michigan
The Michigan Gaming Control Board has approved online and mobile betting on advance deposit horse racing after a new order from executive director Richard S. Kalm.
The order follows an amendment to the state’s horse racing laws made in December 2019, allowing for third party companies to offer wagering on live and simulcast pari-mutuel racing.
The order means these third parties are now also allowed to take bets online.
“The order should enable the state’s horse racing industry to gain new followers through advance deposit wagering and maintain protection for citizens who wish to place wagers on live and simulcast pari-mutuel racing in Michigan using their mobile phones,” Kalm explained.
