Michigan poker players will likely have to wait until 2021 before they see the very first legal hands dealt in online poker, according to a report from The Detroit News.

Brandt Iden, the sponsor of the bill, said that Michigan won't procure any significant tax benefits until online gambling is launched, "Until we're fully integrated online, I don't think we'll be able to capitalize on revenue.

Six people have been indicted for stealing almost $10,000 while playing video poker at Kewardin Casino Hotel & Resort in Michigan, USA. According to local newspapers, Joseph Michael Koster used a "light wand" device to increase payouts from the video poker machines while his companions (Michael Leo Patterson, Cheryl Rose Steinsiek, Vannessa Dale Robb, Bruce Kirby Robb and Jeffrey Paul Neighbors) watched out for casino security and patrons. The scam went on for almost two years from July 2009 to June 2011.

"By using this device, defendant Koster tricked the video poker machine into paying out winnings well in excess of those to which Koster was entitled," Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Lochner wrote in an indictment.

"Before Black Friday, I used to play online poker all the time. Some weeks I'd play for 80 hours. I'd just wake up and play poker and that's really all I did. Then once Black Friday happened, I haven't played online since. It's a whole different life I've been living since Black Friday."
