Michigan law requires many casino employees and employees of companies that supply goods and services to casinos to be licensed by the MGCB.
You must first apply to the casino’s or the supplier’s Human Resources Department.
The MGCB will not process an occupational license application without a written statement that the casino/supplier has or intends to hire you.
If you are hired or the casino/supplier company extends you an employment offer, you must complete an occupational license application for submission to the MGCB.
The casino/supplier will have more information regarding application procedures.
Upon receipt of the application and fee, the MGCB will conduct a background investigation of each applicant and determine whether an occupational license will be issued.
Background investigations may take several weeks depending on the license level and complexity of the investigation.
Your application must be accompanied by an application fee (see chart below).
Temporary Occupational License The MGCB may issue a temporary occupational license if a preliminary review of the application and a computerized criminal history check do not indicate any discrepancies that could result in denial.
Temporary licenses are valid from the date of issue until an occupational license is granted.
The MGCB may renew a temporary license if no disqualifying information is revealed during the investigation.
