Retail sportsbooks in Detroit have experienced back-to-back losses in the past three months without showing signs of a positive rebound. On the other hand, revenue from table games and slots has seen a massive improvement. With projections from the latter, Detroit retail casinos may well be on course for their best annual outing since 2019.
Notably, there have been several standouts, both for retail casinos and for sportsbooks. For instance, MGM Grand Detroit’s operations remain the largest contributor to gaming revenue in the city and Michigan as a whole. However, with sportsbooks, high-earning retail sportsbooks do not seem to help the overall outlook, especially with operators like MotorCity constantly ending months in the red.
