The Michigan Gaming Control Board’s New Executive Director Says Expanding Online Gaming Remains A Priority

Expanding online gaming, as well as optimizing the current offerings, will be among Henry Williams‘ priorities during his six-year term as executive director of the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB), he told Online Poker Report.

Williams took the helm on May 17, replacing outgoing executive director Richard S. Kalm. Kalm oversaw the launch of Michigan online casinos and sportsbooks in January. As of April 30, Michigan saw $280 million in revenue from iGaming alone.

Williams expects the state to implement multi-state online poker during 2021. Eventually, MGCB will allow 15 operators to offer both online casino and online sports betting, said the board’s newly appointed leader.
