Michigan Online Casino Revenue

Michigan online casinos arrived in the state on Jan. 22, 2021. Online poker in Michigan came a week later, with the launch of PokerStars MI. The online gambling law signed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in December 2019 allows all casino license-holders in the state to partner with one online casino brand and one online poker brand.

This arrangement includes Michigan’s 12 tribes and the three commercial casinos in Detroit.

Each month, the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) releases a revenue report. That report includes online gambling revenue for each operator. Although tribal casinos do not report revenue to the MGCB, their online partners do.

This page is updated monthly and includes information on online casino/poker revenue since launch, revenue by operator and taxes paid. Click here for Michigan sports betting revenue.

In Michigan, online casinos and poker sites are taxed on the following metrics:

  • 20% tax for gross revenue less than $4 million
  • 28% tax for gross revenue greater than $12 million

Detroit casinos pay an additional internet tax of 1.25% to the city of Detroit.

Expected online gambling tax revenue in Michigan

When the Michigan online gambling law was signed, the state Department of Treasury $19 million in tax revenue from both internet gambling and sports betting.

The timeline for launch, however, shifted after all 26 casinos in the state shut their doors during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. Tax revenue from gambling in Michigan came to a screeching halt for five months.

A September 2020 of the law estimated MI online casinos will bring in $18 million on their own. Another $7 million will come from online sportsbooks, bringing the total to $25 million in state revenue.

However, some Michigan lawmakers believe the numbers still err on the conservative side, with estimates closer to $30 million or $50 million in the first year.
