Michigan Gaming Control Board
Detroit, June 8, 2021 - Small-business owners may conduct up to $100,000 in non-gaming business with the Detroit casinos in a 12-month period without notifying the Michigan Gaming Control Board under a resolution approved during a public meeting today. The MGCB also will grant longer, five-year licensing exemptions to non-gaming vendors.
"The changes approved by a 4-0 Board vote allow more small businesses to supply things like food and beverages, snow removal or laundry services to the Detroit casinos without disclosing information to the MGCB," said Henry Williams, MGCB executive director. "If you are a non-gaming vendor already registered for internet casino gaming or online sports betting, your firm can provide up to $400,000 in goods and services to each Detroit casino and skip added paperwork."
Under Resolution No. 2021-03 adopted today:
Any currently granted exemptions will remain in effect for their one-year period unless otherwise ordered. The terms and conditions in this resolution will apply on renewal.
"The Michigan Gaming Control Board shall ensure the conduct of fair and honest gaming to protect the interests of the citizens of the State of Michigan."
