Michigan gambling analysis from Drew Ellis

Drew Ellis on online casino success in Michigan:

“Michigan online casinos have provided a great blueprint for other states to follow. With a cooperative effort in the planning by all of Michigan’s tribal and non-tribal operators, online casinos are producing nearly 2,600% more tax revenue for the state than online sports betting. It has been a big boost for Michigan.”
