The three Detroit casinos reported aggregate revenue of $108.1 million for June, the Michigan Gaming Control Board has reported today.
Despite being limited to only nine days of full capacity in June due to COVID-19 precautions, MGM Grand, MotorCity, and Greektown casinos took in $105.8 million from table games and slots, and $2.3 million from sports betting. This figure is in line with recent months, when the three casinos reported $109.7 in aggregate revenue for May, and $108.9 for April. This marks the fifth consecutive month that the trio of Detroit-based casinos have combined to eclipse the $100 million mark. The last time the casinos were open for the entire month of June was in 2019, when aggregate revenue was reported at $117.5 for table games and slots.
Concerns over vaccinations, social distancing, and COVID-19 variants caused the city to limit the capacity at the three casinos for a little more than a week in June. The restrictions were lifted on June 22.
Once again, MGM Grand Detroit led the way in market share with 44%, followed by MotorCity Casino at 35%, and Greektown Casino with 21%.
