The state of Michigan launched their sportsbetting market in March, and the state's casinos generated $105,548 in revenues off the activity, despite only running for five days before sporting events and casinos were forced to close.
The market opened at Detroit casinos on March 11th, but temporarily closed due to Governor Gretchen Whitmer issuing a lockdown order to stop the spread of Covid-19. The MGM Grand Detroit led the way with $84,695 in revenues, while the Greektown Casino was second with $15,904. MotorCity Casino was in last place, with revenues of $4,949 during the five days.
It's likely that Michigan's numbers will explode when the casinos re-open and events get underway, as the state's population rivals that of New Jersey, which has proven to be a largely successful market for sportsbetting.
No timetable for the re-opening of the casinos was known as of press time.
