Michigan doubles down on illegal gambling crackdown

Home » Michigan doubles down on illegal gambling crackdown

Throughout 2023, 64 Michigan businesses received letters to cease illegal gambling, leading to the removal of 167 illegal gambling machines.

As a result of investigations by the Michigan Gaming Control Board, and in partnership with the Michigan Attorney General’s Office, 79 machines used for illegal gambling were seized last year. Nine individuals received criminal gambling convictions and 24 individuals were arraigned on illegal gambling charges.

“Thanks to the vigilant supervision of the Michigan Gaming Control Board, last year agency personnel were able to target and disrupt several instances of illegal gambling activities that undermined the integrity of our legitimate, regulated gaming industry,” MGCB executive director Henry Williams said.

“With a commitment to maintaining fairness, transparency and public trust, these proactive efforts were undertaken — thanks to many tips from concerned Michigan citizens — to ensure safe, regulated gambling environments. I encourage the public to please keep the tips coming, as we take each one very seriously.”
