Missed it by that much.
The online casino market in Michigan had its second-best month ever in January, according to the Michigan Gaming Control Board. It took in a little over $121.2 million in gross receipts, barely falling short of the record of $121.7 million set in December.
And in the most unsurprising news of the month, BetMGM Online Casino Michigan continued its stranglehold as the dominant force in the Michigan iCasino world, bringing in nearly $43.9 million for the month.
Perhaps worth noting, however? That number was down from December’s record of $46 million.
Coming in second was DraftKings, with $20.1 million, and FanDuel maintained its third place standing with a $17.6 million month.
Fourth place was BetRivers at $8.2 million, and Golden Nugget Casino cleared its way to fifth place with $6 million.
WynnBet Casino Michigan went up to $5.3 million in January from $4.7 million in December, followed by Barstool at $4.9 million, Caesars Casino Michigan at $4.4 million, and Stars Casino Michigan at $3.1 million.
Rounding out the rest: Parx at $2.2 million (up from $1.3 million), Four Winds at $2.2 million, TwinSpires at $1.3 million, Firekeepers at $1.1 million, and PointsBet at $827,376.
For the month, the online casinos paid $19.1 million in taxes to the state of Michigan, $5.2 million in taxes to the city of Detroit, and nearly $2.2 million to the state’s tribal concerns.
