Starting at noon on Friday, online sports betting and casino games can commence for nine locations, including four in Northern Michigan.

It’s been a long time coming for supporters of the change after it was passed in 2019. All of 2020 was spent finalizing the rules.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board expects to authorize more casinos in the upcoming days and weeks.
