Millionaire Party Licensing

The Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) continues to work closely with qualified organizations (charities) and suppliers to issue millionaire party licenses under the emergency rules issued July 2, 2014.  The emergency rules were approved by the Governor after ongoing litigation eliminated the promulgated rules which were effective May 14, 2014.

As of May 15, 2015, the MGCB has issued 2,122 millionaire party licenses which equates to over 7,405 event days, and more than $111.1 million in potential chip sales at events.  We expect the numbers to continue to grow as charities and suppliers become more familiar with the emergency rules.

Many new suppliers and locations have been added, offering the charities even more options to assist them in the operation of their charity events.  On April 29, 2015, the Auburn Sportmen's Bar was added to the list of locations hosting millionaire parties, bringing the number of reoccurring locations hosting events to 67.  Charities are encouraged to use the links above for lists of locations and licensed suppliers.

Please feel free to call our office at (313) 456-4940 for any additional questions or assistance.

Millionaire Party Update: Court of Appeals arguments

The Michigan Court of Appeals heard oral arguments March 3 regarding the millionaire party rules enjoined in 2014 by the Michigan Court of Claims. The Michigan Gaming Control Board’s (MGCB) appeal contests the lower court’s ruling based on the timing of changes to the rules.

The Court of Appeals granted the MGCB’s request for an expedited review. Regardless of when or what the Court of Appeals decides, the MGCB intends to continue issuing millionaire party licenses to qualified charities pursuant to the Bingo Act.

The millionaire party emergency rules remain in effect at this time.
