Michigan Sports Betting Revenue

Each month, the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) releases a revenue report detailing revenue for the three commercial casinos in Detroit and Michigan online sportsbooks. The report includes sports betting handle and revenue. For now, the releases are coming separately, with Detroit’s retail casinos first and the online operators later.

What this report does not include is how much sports betting revenue and bets the tribal retail sportsbooks are generating. They are sovereign and not part of this report. However, all online betting sites that have partnered with a tribal casino operator report to the MGCB, so the data includes all sportsbook apps active in the state.

Detroit casinos closed on March 16 for pandemic restrictions, five days after sports betting launched.

Initial sports betting revenue projections

Legislative analysis for the Lawful Sports Betting Act, signed in December 2019 by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, estimated a mature market range of $175-$225 million from sports betting at tribal and commercial casinos.

Those estimates, at a then-proposed 8.75% tax rate, would’ve netted public entities $7.7-$9.8 million from the Detroit casinos and $9.4-$12.1 million from tribal casinos.

At the time, however, the analysis noted that tribes could discontinue payments to the state, because the expansion of gambling could void terms of their compacts.

It also noted that online sports betting would ultimately make up 80-90% of the total adjusted gross receipts.

Rep. Robert Kosowski raised the first two pieces of legislation related to Michigan sports betting in 2015. When the bills were being considered by the state House of Representatives in 2015, analysts looked west.

In its legislative analysis of H4669, the House Fiscal Agency used proportional information from Nevada in 2014 to estimate that Michigan would receive $25-$30 million in adjusted gross receipts.

Those projections would result in $2.0-$2.4 million to the state school aid fund at a proposed 8.1% tax rate, and $2.7-$3.3 million to the city of Detroit using a 10.9% tax rate.

There was caution, however, that any expansion of gambling would put tribal compacts in jeopardy and create additional administrative costs.

Whitmer’s announcement upon signing the bills indicated an estimate of $19 million of new revenue, including $4.8 million to the School Aid Fund and $4 million into the First Responder Presumed Coverage Fund.

Online sports betting has arrived in Michigan

Sports betting apps and online casinos should have a profound impact on the Michigan online gambling market.

Each of Detroit’s three commercial casinos and the 12 federally recognized Native American tribes can partner with an online operator. Online wagers were first accepted on Jan. 22, 2021.
