The Detroit casino workers’ strike lasted the longest in November, spreading across a total of 19 full days in the month. It is therefore no surprise that the attendant financial setback is relatively more intense. According to data released by the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB), November turned out to be the worst month in recent times for retail casinos in Detroit.
Hollywood Casino at Greektown, MotorCity Casino and MGM Grand Detroit combined to generate $76 million in the month, the lowest full month total since February 2001. This is not counting months in the pandemic where Detroit casinos were closed for several days.
