Quite a number of operators are leaving—or have left—Michigan, especially in the final quarter of this year. Most of the exits have been due to actions of the Michigan Gaming Control Board in tightening gambling regulations across the state. A few others, however, made the business decision to leave the Great Lakes State due to financial and operational constraints.
For Virtual Gaming Worlds, the resolution to halt operations in Michigan stems from both factors it appears. This especially true, considering that the company’s exit announcement came weeks after Golden Heart Games Inc. was booted out of the state back in September.
