Michigan to Get Mobile Horse Racing

The state of Michigan is poised to begin offering mobile horse race betting, as a new directive came down from the Michigan Gaming Control Board.

MGCB executive director Richard S. Kalm, which will allow punters to bet on races that are live within the state as well as simulcast events from around the world. The Wolverine State changed their laws last year when lawmakers amended their horseracing laws to allow for expanded options.

Speaking about the decision Kalm said, "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."

No timeframe for the integration is available, but right now all of the state's horse racing tracks are closed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
