This is starting to get into “broken record” category, both literally and figuratively, as the Michigan online casino market just set a new monthly record, taking in nearly $131.7 million in March and topping February’s previous all-time high of $122.8 million.
The numbers, released by the Michigan Gaming Control Board, also showed the continued dominance of BetMGM Casino when it comes to online casino gaming in the Wolverine State. The company took in just a hair under $47.9 million, a new record for the clear market leader.
FanDuel Online Michigan Casino took second place for the month with $22.4 million and DraftKings Casino MI third with $20.7 million. Those numbers were also record highs for both companies. Fourth place was BetRivers Casino with its own record of $9.7 million, while Golden Nugget Casino continued its strong performance in Michigan with $6 million.
From there, Barstool rocketed to a $5.5 million month which was – one guess! – a record for the company. WynnBet Casino Michigan was next at $4.9 million, followed by Caesars Casino at $4.5 million. Next up was Four Winds at $2.7 million; Stars Casino Michigan at $2.6 million; Parx at $2.4 million; Firekeepers at $1.1 million; TwinSpires at $750,269; and PointsBet once again in last place with $740,374.
For the month, the online casinos paid $23.9 million to the state in taxes, $6.5 million to the city of Detroit, and another $2.7 million to tribal operators.
