Gambling in Michigan

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker
May 2, 2006

Since April 1 1998, gambling was sentenced as a legal source of entertainment all over America. However, this law varies with state and the games to be considered as legal. Since the 1st of April all the American states started paying more attention to gambling so as to gain more entertainment revenue. In this pursuit the state of Michigan cannot lag behind. The state of Michigan has defined State Lottery, Horse Racing, Charitable Gaming which includes bingo and raffles, Indian Casino Gaming and Non-Indian Casino Gaming as legal. Unlike Florida Michigan does not legalize betting on dog races.

Laws for gambling in Michigan:

There are various gambling laws formulated by the state government of Michigan. Some of them are as follows, one has to be of 18 years of age and mentally normal to start gambling. One should posses a license to open a gambling house or to own a slot machine or roulette. If any person wins a money amount of more than $50.00, by playing cards, or dice or any other means of gambling then he has to pay a fine of $1,000 or would be imprisoned for 1 year. If one has lost some amount of money or a valuable in the act of gambling, then he has to repay it to the winner within 3 months. Otherwise he has to pay a fine which would be 3 times the amount to be repaid.

Types of gambling in Michigan:

Michigan has around 26 casinos in total. Some of them are the Detroit Casino, Harris Casino, Northville Casino, The Mt. Pleasant Casino which has 79 table games and is the largest in Michigan, and the list goes on. The state of Michigan has allowed 3 casinos in Detroit city. Thus this city has the maximum casinos. Motorcity Casino, Greektown Casino and MGM Grand Detroit are the 3 Detroit Casinos. The state lottery of Michigan dates back to 1972.  It is the largest single source of accumulating state revenue in Michigan. There are around 6 horse racing tracks operating currently in Michigan. Some of the horse racing tracks in Michigan are Great Lakes Downs, Northville Downs, Mt. Pleasant Meadows, and Sorts Creek Raceway. The charitable gaming such as bingo and riffle are conducted by the Michigan lottery.

But as the saying goes, every coin has two sides. Similarly with growing number of casinos and other gambling games the security or an individual in Michigan has been endangered. Thus the crime rate is increasing rapidly. And there is a loss of investment in other sport fields. But precaution is better than cure and so one must learn to play safe.
