Legal Online Poker In Michigan

Michigan, like the majority of US states where poker is legal operates a ‘ring-fenced’ online poker market, meaning that poker players using licensed poker software may only play against people from the same state.

States with legal poker in 2022: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Delaware.

West Virginia and Connecticut regulators have also both authorized legal online U.S poker, but no online poker operators have seized the opportunity in these states. Players from Michigan can presently play on the PokerStars and Partypoker US Networks (via the BetMGM skin).

This launch may enable residents of the state to participate in major World Series of Poker (WSOP) online series & bracelet events, satellites and WSOP Circuit series events.

With the All-American Poker Network, WSOP.com runs the country’s first shared liquidity network, with Nevada and New Jersey included, & 888poker in Delaware.

The property also serves as a fenced-in platform in Pennsylvania. For players in the Keystone State market, the WSOP also provides online circuit ring and bracelet events.

For live poker lovers, Michigan state also has legal live poker, however currently there are only eleven legal and regulated card-rooms in Michigan state and just 29 casinos.
