Three Main Detroit Casinos Bring In $101.4m Despite Capped Capacity

Despite operating at 15 per cent capacity, the three commercial casinos in Detroit took in $101.4m in revenue during October.

Table games and slot machines contributed $93.8m up from September by 6.7 percent. Gross receipts adjusted for sports betting climbed 72.7 percent month on month.

In adjusted gross receipts, MGM Grand Detroit contributed $ 3.7 million, followed by MotorCity Casino at $ 2.2 million and Greektown Casino at $ 1.7 million.

The second month of retail sports betting in the state was October. While it got the green light back in March, as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, properties were then ordered to close.

The three establishments paid the State of Michigan a total of $7.6 million in taxes and the City of Detroit $11.2 million in tax wagering and development agreement fees.

The Control Board has approved licence renewals for MGM Grand Detroit, MotorCity Casino and Greektown Casino.
