Detroit Casinos Set Gambling Revenue Records in March

The Motor City's gambling industry is roaring to life, as Detroit's three land casinos set all-time highs for gambling revenues, with two of the spots setting new individual records.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board set revenues of $138.6 million, which is up 5.7% from the same month in 2017. The numbers are the highest ever for Detroit's casinos, which launched 19 years ago. The previous record for revenue was $135.3 million, which was obtained in March 2012.

The MGM Grand had the highest revenue, with $58.1 million coming in, which is a 7.3% improvement while also beating the previous record of $57.2 million. The Motor City Casino was second with $49.3 million, also a record. The Greektown Casino was third at $31.2 million, which was below the $34.7 million record set in March 2013.

Revenue predictions for April could be lofty as well, as Caesars Windsor in neighboring Windsor, Ontario, is experiencing a worker strike and has been forced to close until April 18th.

Michigan has 23 casinos within their borders, but the vast majority of casinos are located more than 100 miles away, leaving the Detroit casinos as the closest option for the more than 4 million people that live in the area.
