The next decade will mark a remarkable period for Michigan sports bettors. 2021 marks the tenth anniversary of the Michigan state supreme court's decision in Stickler v. Breckenridge. This decision ruled that a portion of the state law authorizing sports betting violated the rights of the people in the state. As a result, the future of Michigan sports betting was changed dramatically. In addition, Michigan became one of only a handful of states to eliminate the requirement for an income or bank account in order to place a bet.
By the end of the next decade, it is estimated that the increase of Michigan sports betting revenue will be in the tens of millions of dollars annually. The decade ahead will also witness many more major ups and downs in the world of wagering. The unpredictability and skill involved in many games make them particularly difficult to handicap. To counteract these odds, bettors will need to use the power of new and innovative software to help them develop an accurate statistical tracking system.
In addition, the next ten years will also witness a tremendous expansion of online gambling. The growth of internet gambling in Michigan has been led by advances in information technology, including computer software programs that make the entire act of wagering easier and faster. One type of software program, a \"robot,\" has even reached the point where professional bettors can wager over one hundred thousand dollars from their computers, eliminating the necessity for physically located bettors all over Michigan. In fact, the software serves to reduce the overall influence of human intervention to a large extent.
However, the development of such software could spell the end of Michigan's legal casinos. A provision in a recently passed state law states that the state is now working on a plan that will effectively ban all online gaming. If the law passes, which is highly likely, the state of Michigan will be the first in the country to ban all casino gambling. The main argument against the ban states that it is intended to stifle the growth of legitimate gambling in the state. This argument, while possibly valid, overlooks the fact that the new law will simply make Michigan gambling more accessible.
According to Matt Hayes of the Michigan Gaming Commission, the ban on internet gambling in the state \"is not intended to affect the amount of money that residents will be able to gamble or the kinds of services that they may avail from licensed gambling establishments.\" He went on to add that all legal gambling takes place at licensed casinos and online sports betting is \"simply another way for residents to enjoy playing Michigan games without going to a traditional location.\" Therefore, the ban does not have a \"chilling effect\" on legitimate businesses in the state.
However, it is important to realize that the ban on internet gambling in the state will affect all legal gambling businesses. This includes any business that accepts Michigan gaming IDen, whether it be an internet casino sportsbook, or any other business that accepts Michigan gaming IDen. Furthermore, all businesses that accept or process wagers through IDen will be required to upgrade their equipment, and create new ideas in order to remain compliant with the newly minted laws.
The next step that will occur in the future will be the implementation of IDen verification at all Michigan licensed gambling establishments. IDen verification will first be implemented at the local level. After the county boards to get the go-ahead from the state, it will then move onto the state level. In the meantime, it is important to remember that all internet gambling sites are still required to verify a customer's identity before giving him/her access to the site.
For all of the people out there in Michigan who are confused about the current situation regarding the future of Michigan sports betting, I hope that you now see that things are not as bad as some people make them out to be. The state is still very open to legalize sports betting, and hopefully things will improve in the near future. I am not saying that things will change dramatically overnight, but I am just saying that things will get better in the near future.
