Online casino gaming in Michigan continues to post big revenues after reporting a record high in the month of April.

The Michigan Gaming Control Board released the state’s iGaming numbers for April earlier this week which showed that the state’s iGaming platforms reported $132.4 million in revenue in April. That is the best monthly revenue on record for Michigan since iGaming launched in the state in January 2021.

How did Michigan online casinos do?

The $132.4 million in April topped the previous record of $131.7 million which was set a month earlier. It was also a 34 percent increase when compared to revenues reported in the month of April 2021.

The $132.4 million revenue also placed Michigan second in the country in iGaming revenue for the month. Michigan trailed only New Jersey, which reported $136.8 million, and ahead of third place Pennsylvania which reported $113.1 million.

Michigan’s commercial casino industry is limited to only three casinos located in Detroit. During the month of April, the three casinos, the MGM Grand, MotorCity Casino, and Hollywood Casino at Greektown, reported gross gaming revenues of $118.8 million. That means the iGaming revenue topped the brick and mortar revenue by $13.6 million.

That’s not bad news for the brick and mortar casinos who all have a piece of the online action. The MGM Grand iGaming site BetMGM led all iGaming sites in the state with $50 million in revenue in April. The BetMGM Sportsbook also reported an addition $7.2 million in revenue.

MotorCity’s iGaming partner is FanDuel which reported $18.9 million in iGaming revenue and an additional $15.6 million in revenue from their sportsbook in April.

Hollywood Casino’s iGaming site is operated by Penn National Gaming and reported $5.2 million revenue in April. The Hollywood online sportsbook, operated by Barstool reported $1.1 million in revenue.
