Michigan is finally joining the online poker shared liquidity pool together with from New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware. Experts view this as a big step on the way for the legalization of online poker in the United States.
Michigan has just been admitted to the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA). That means Michigan will soon share its online poker player pool with the US states New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware.

In simple terms this means that the three online poker sites, which are available in Michigan: PokerStars MI, BetMGM Poker MI and WSOP MI will now be able to connect with their regulated online poker rooms.
“The Multi-State Internet Gaming Association welcomes Michigan to its ranks”
Rebecca Satterfield, Manager of the Multi-State Internet Gaming Association LLC and the Internet Gaming Manager for the Delaware Lottery announced that:
“The Multi-State Internet Gaming Association welcomes Michigan to its ranks, along with its nearly 10 million residents, who can now avail themselves of a full array of interactive gaming among the Association’s member states. The Association continues to be forward thinking and welcomes the interest of additional gaming jurisdictions in becoming party to the Agreement.”
The announcement comes just one week after the World Series of Poker launched WSOP MI, bringing the only US-friendly poker site with shared liquidity to Michigan.
Traffic in New Jersey, Nevada, Delaware and Michigan will double!
Poker players in New Jersey, Nevada, Delaware and Michigan will see traffic double.
As a result, there will be more cash game traffic and a wider variety of games and limits as well as bigger guarantees and prize pools in poker tournaments.
Sit & Gos and Spins will fill up and start much faster and the Sunday Majors are about to double in size.
Since its launch, the player pool on WSOP MI has been isolated in the Wolverine state, but this is about to change now that Michigan is a part of the MSIGA.
This development could also lead to the two leading online poker sites in Michigan, PokerStars and BetMGM Poker, to follow suit and join their player pools across several US states.
Michigan joining the MSIGA is a huge development for online poker in the US
Michigan joining the MSIGA is a huge development for online poker in the USA as well as for the US poker community.
Due to its large population of ten million, Michigan will almost double the shared online poker player pool in the US!
In addition to that, it is highly likely that other US states with isolated player pools will aim to join the shared liquidity rather sooner than later.
