Here is a copy of the email the MGCB sent me (1st one since signing up several months ago):

The Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) continues to work closely with qualified organizations (charities) and suppliers to issue millionaire party licenses under the emergency rules issued July 2.  The emergency rules were approved by the Governor after ongoing litigation eliminated the promulgated rules which were effective May 14, 2014.

As of August 27, 2014, the MGCB has issued 161 millionaire party licenses which equates toover 500 event days, and we expect that number to continue to grow as charities and suppliers become more familiar with the emergency rules.

Many new suppliers and locations have been added, offering the charities even more options to assist them in the operation of their charity events. Charities are encouraged to visit our website at www.michigan.gov/mgcb for a list of locations and licensed suppliers.  

Please feel free to call our office at (313) 456-4940 for any additional questions or assistance.

Yes, thank you oh great master of charity poker.  The crumbs you are leaving the charities since almost eliminating tournaments in the rooms with your ridiculous cap of expenses is much appreciated.

Lets look at Vision Lanes for a minute.  They were running 150+ entry tournaments on Thursday and Fridays.  Now they cannot afford to pay for dealers because the suppliers cannot charge more than $650 minus the rent for the location which is usually $250.  150 runners * $30 entry = $4500 with the charities getting 20% = $900 that the charities are now losing out on.  #notamathguy

But remember, the MGCB is doing this “for the charities…”  What a crock of shit.  If it were for the charities they would listen to what the charities want, not what the casinos do.
