Michigan Gaming Control Board
The Michigan Gaming Control Board provides for the licensing, regulation and control of casino gaming operations at the Detroit commercial casinos. It also licenses and regulates the casinos' gaming equipment manufacturers and distributors, suppliers and employees. Additionally, the agency regulates pari-mutuel horse racing and casino-style charitable gaming. Agency staff also audits compliance with tribal gaming compact agreements with the state of Michigan.
Please Note: The Detroit casinos will be closed from Nov. 18 through Dec. 8, 2020, in accordance with a Michigan Department of Health and Human Services order issued Nov. 15. Additionally, the MGCB ordered live and simulcast horse racing to cease at Northville Downs from Nov. 18 through Dec. 8 due to public health concerns. The MGCB also accepted Northville Downs' request to cancel live racing on Dec. 11 and 12. Millionaire Party events cannot be held because the MDHHS order prohibits gatherings at indoor non-residential venues.
