Michigan is one of 29 states in the US with licensed Indian gambling establishments, and from all indications, this sector of the gaming industry has so far thrived. While revenue reports for Indian gambling establishments are not regularly published, like state gaming receipts that are reported monthly, every year, we get insights into the performance of the sector.

According to this report, the US Indian gaming industry generated over $40 billion in 2022. Michigan and five other states in the St. Paul Region recorded gross receipts of $5 billion.
