Why a Michigan online casino game supplier’s interim license is a positive sign Matt Schoch, PlayMichigan · October 21, 2020 at 11:42 pm As Michigan inches toward the launch of online casinos later this year, there will be a slow drip of licenses handed out by the Michigan Gaming Control Board. Licenses for operators are in the works, but other entities related to the business of an online gambling site are making headway. Among the first recipients is Ainsworth Game Technology Limited, one of the industry’s leading online casino slot suppliers. The Australian company was listed on Oct. 20 as being provisionally licensed by the board as a sports betting and online casino supplier. The name Ainsworth may not mean as much to future MI online casino players. But the fact that interim licenses are being delivered is a good sign.
