Detroit's land casinos saw revenues jump 8.9% in April, but were down 3.4% from the $122.9 million that the casinos brought in March.
The numbers were reported by the Michigan Gaming Control Board, and indicated that the MGM Grand, MotorCity Casino, and Greektown Casino-Hotel had $118.7 million in revenues combined.
The MGM Grand Detroit had 48% market share, while the MotorCity Casino had 31%. The Greektown Casino-Hotel had a 21% share, bringing it into last place. Table game revenues and slot machines had $116.9 million in revenue for the casino, up 8.8% from last year. There was $1.9 million in sportsbetting revenue off $24.8 million in handle.
The MGCB said that the growth is due to the fact that in 2021 the casinos were operating at limited capacity and with social distancing rules in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2022 these restrictions are gone and the casinos are operating at full capacity,
