(WXYZ) — The Michigan Gaming Control Board has started accepting online gaming supplier licensing forms.

The forms and related information can be found in a new website section, Internet Gaming and Fantasy Contests.

“We’ve taken another step toward the launch of online gaming by beginning the licensing process,” said Richard S. Kalm, MGCB executive director. “The MGCB encourages suppliers to file applications soon so we can conduct investigations and issue provisional licenses, which are allowed under state law.”

The board can issue provisional licenses for all suppliers other than platform providers, but platform providers can still copmlete applications and be ready for licensing when the rules are finalized.

“We continue to make progress on rule promulgation for internet gaming and online sports betting,” Kalm said. “While we expect to launch these forms of betting by early 2021, we hope it can happen sooner.”
