20 years ago agreements were made that allowed for casinos to be opened by the state's American Indians. On Saturday, the deals will expire.
It is expected to take some time for new deals to be made. Possibly months or years. However changes will not take place immediately.
Central and northern Michigan will still be operating their casinos. 2 percent of of slot gaming revenues are paid to the state. The casinos used to pay 8 percent. However the amount was decreased when casinos opened in Detroit.
Currently it is unknown what a new deal will mean for both the tribes and the state.
Return to Michigan Casinos.
