Charity gaming will become more prolific, but available on fewer nights of the year, under a compromise reached this week by the Michigan Gaming Control Board and a lawmaker who wanted charities to have freer rein to use gambling as a fund-raising tool.
Currently, there are only 40 establishments in the state that host charity poker games, but they do it 365 days a year and can accommodate multiple charities on any given night. The compromise will allow just about any place — including bars, churches, schools, fraternal halls and community centers — to host the charity gaming, but only four days a week or 208 days a year. Only one charity could participate in a gaming night at any establishment.
