Offshore betting and online casino online Bovada added Michigan to the list of states that cannot access the website.

The move comes about three weeks after the Michigan Gaming Control Board issued a cease-and-desist letter to Bovada.

Another state could be added shortly. Connecticut‘s gaming regulator confirmed to LSR it sent a cease-and-desist to the sports betting and iGaming company’s parent company on June 14.

Michigan is the seventh state to be added to Bovada’s blocked list. Potential bettors in those states are greeted with a message stating, “We currently don’t offer services in your area.”

It is not possible to even sign up for the sportsbook while in a prohibited state.
