Michigan Cashes In
The state raked in a hefty amount of iGaming taxes from the operators in Michigan. Michigan received 19.3m in taxes. Due to the substantial decline in sports betting revenue, the state only received $426,873 from sports betting.
There are three Detroit land-based casinos in Michigan: MGM Grand, Motorcity, and Greektown, which reported $5.5m in the new city wagering taxes and municipal service fees. Online casinos and other online games brought in $5.2m, while sports gambling made up the remaining $263,398.
The Michigan Gaming Control Board is in charge of licensing and the regulation of the local market. There are land-based casinos, tribal casinos, online casinos, and online bookmakers available in the state and they have all been doing very well. If this trend continues, Michigan will have plenty of tax revenues to fund leisure and community projects for citizens of the state.
