Legalized in the state of Michigan in Dec 2019, online poker is weeks away from offering cash games in the state. Let's analyze some providers that are waiting for a license to start operating in the state and see who's likely to be present when the games start running in Michigan.

It is very likely that someday in November, possibly in one or two weeks, Michigan players can already find cash games in online poker rooms, as well as other forms of games such as casino and sports betting. All that is left is for providers to be issued licenses and so far almost 50 operators have applied for them. Some well-established names in the industry have already applied for it while others are notably absent from the list of possible upcoming rooms available in the region.

Michigan Online Poker License Applicants

Some of the operators that are trying to get a license and be there to run the first online real money poker tables in Michigan include the Stars Groups with its giant brand PokerStars; PartyPoker which currently battles PokerStar for the leadership in the US market, and is expected to give it a fight and that those two brands become the biggest competitors and together dominate most of the market. Other notable names in the applicant's list, although they are not necessarily interested in launching online poker tables in the states (but are interested in entering with an online sportsbook) are William Hill, Betfair, DraftKings, SugarHouse, Barstool, BetMGM, and Scientific Games.

One notable absence in this list is no less than GGPoker that, together with PartyPoker and PokerStars, make up the top 3 poker sites in terms of popularity. They have so far not disclosed any of their plans for the American market, so far do not operate in any other American state, and have not applied for the Michigan license. With its quick surge in popularity, though, it is possible for GGPoker to expand and catch up with its competitors later in the US, but are not expected to be upcoming in Michigan any time so soon.
