The online casino rush in Michigan showed no signs of slowing down in September, as a new record was set for total receipts by operators with nearly $102.4 million. The previous record was set a month earlier, with $97.2 million.

Once again, BetMGM lapped the field, taking in $40.6 million, also a record for the company. Second and third place was a near dead heat, with DraftKings bringing in $15.4 million and FanDuel $15.3 million. Fourth place was BetRivers with $6.7 million, while Golden Nugget took fifth with $4.7 million. WynnBet came in sixth at $4.5 million, and Barstool had its best casino month to date with $3.9 million.

Rounding out the rest of the field were Stars with $2.9 million, Four Winds with $2.4 million, Parx with $1.6 million, Caesars with $1.4 million, TwinSpires with $1.3 million, Firekeepers at $1.1 million, and PointsBet with $294,019.

Big tax bill

The casino operators paid out nearly $18.7 million in taxes to the state, also a new high water mark. They also paid over $5.2 million to the city of Detroit and another $2 million to the tribes, all record-setting numbers

Year-to-date — and keeping in mind the first online casinos didn’t go live until Jan. 22 — the operators have brought in nearly $775 million in total gross receipts, shattering the best legislative estimates. They’ve also paid over $139 million in taxes to the state, $38.5 million to Detroit, and $15.2 million to the tribes.
