In most every region of the world where online gambling is legalized, there are protections in place to keep players safe from harm. Such options include self-exclusion tools where players can choose to limit their gameplay or even stop access altogether. In Michigan, even though the industry is only just over a month old, there is a Responsible Gambling Database option so players can limit themselves as needed.
Responsible Gambling Database
The database is a self-exclusion tool that online casinos and sportsbooks in the state can use to help players avoid gambling harm. As of right now, there have been zero applications filled out for the program. Online gambling officially started on January 22. As the industry is new, it would not be expected that the list would be filled this early on.
For players who want to use the self-exclusion tool, it is quite simple. You can submit a separate application for the online casino and sportsbooks in the state or choose to self-exclude yourself from both. The application can be filled out whether you have an account at any of the sites or not.
The period of self-exclusion in Michigan will last from one to five years. When the period expires, the applicant is removed from the list. Applicants will not be placed on any of the self-exclusion lists until the processing of an application is completed. It can take up to 45 days to be added and an email or letter will be provided based on contact options listed by the individual.
