Michigan became the 15th state to legalize online gaming on January 22, 2021. Since then, five more states have joined. The state legalized horse racing in 1933. It expanded to casinos with card games and slots in 2020. In 2021, it will legalize sports gambling in Michigan. Michigan is the only state that allows online betting. iReport.com: iReporter.co.uk: What do you think about gambling? Share your thoughts.
