Ho-Hum, Michigan’s Online Casinos Have Fourth Best Month Ever

Michigan’s online casino players apparently decided to pick a few apples and get in some late summer sun.

September’s gross online casino receipts dropped a tick from August’s $130.9 million, down to a still-robust $128.7 million, according to figures released by the Michigan Gaming Control Board. By the way, that’s still the fourth-highest month in Michigan’s short history of online gaming, with April’s $132.4 million still holding on to the number one spot.

As for individual online casinos? The story remains the same, with it being BetMGM’s world and the rest of the iCasinos just living in it. The big lion did a lick under $46.3 million in receipts for the month, besting second place FanDuel at $22.5 million and third place DraftKings at $21.9 million.

Fourth place was BetRivers at $8.3 million, and Golden Nugget held on to fifth place for the second consecutive month, taking in $5.8 million. Caesars remained in sixth place with a $5.6 million month.

After that, the pickings start getting slim and tight, with Barstool at $3.6 million and WynnBet at $3.1 million. Bringing up the rear were Four Winds at a shade under $3 million, Soaring Eagle at $2.9 million, Stars at $2.2 million, Parx, just a bit under $2 million, PointsBet at $845,655, FireKeepers at $700,591 million, and TwinSpires at $15,475 (the company shuttered iCasino operations days into September).

For the month, the online casinos paid just under $24 million to the state in taxes, $6.3 million to the city of Detroit, and another $2.8 million to tribal operators.
