Michigan Online Gaming Revenue Month of July

Latest News

Last month, Michigan’s online casino and sports betting operators reported a combined $176.1 million in gross receipts. July’s numbers represented a 4.0% increase month over month when compared with June’s revenue of $169.3 million

Both sports wagering and online casino gambling were up month over month. Sports betting operators were responsible for $22.5 million in revenue in July, while online casino skins brought in $153.6 million. 

Online Casino Revenue Reaches $1 Billion in 2023

Last month, online casinos in Michigan also broke a record for the state by generating $1 billion in annual revenue in just seven months. July’s $153.6 million in revenue brought the total revenue in 2023 to $1.09 billion. 

The $1.09 billion is a massive improvement from this time last year. January through July 2022 ended with around $883 million in revenue. The first seven months of 2023 generated over 23% more revenue than the same period in 2022. With football season just around the corner, we will likely continue to see these numbers rise. 

All of this revenue means a lot of tax dollars for the state. Since June 2021, tax revenue from online gambling and sports wagering has generated at least $20 million every single month. In the past five months, the state of Michigan cashed in over $39 million a month. 

With such a successful July, we will likely see Michigan cross the $1 billion milestone for state tax revenue by the end of August.
