Strikes hit Detroit casino revenue again in November

Worker strikes across the Detroit land-based gambling sector hit casinos again in November, with revenue in the Michigan city falling 22.3% year-on-year to $79.1m (£63.1m/€73.3m).

Revenue from the city’s three land-based commercial casinos was down from $101.8m in the same month last year. The November figure was also down 4.5% from the $82.8m that Detroit posted in October this year.

The decline came against a background of strikes in Detroit. Some workers went on strike on 17 October and did not reach an agreement on pay until mid-November. This meant the MGM Grand, Greektown and MotorCity casinos were short of staff for most of the month.

Of all revenue generated by the three casinos, $76.0m came from tables games and slots. This was 23.9% behind last year’s total and 7.0% less than October 2023.

The remaining $3.1m in revenue was attributed to sports betting qualified adjusted gross receipts (QAGR). This was 63.2% higher than November 2022 and 181.8% ahead of October this year…

Detroit casinos hit by strikes as revenue slips to $82.8m in October

Revenue from the three commercial casinos in Detroit declined to $82.8m (£66.5m/€76.2m) in October as venues in Michigan felt the impact of ongoing strikes.

Some Detroit casino workers have been on strike since 17 October. This has led to the partial closures of casinos with certain facilities not being available for almost a month.

This inevitably hit monthly performance during October, with revenue down 19.5% from $102.8m last year. The October figure was also 18.5% lower than the $101.6m posted in September this year.

Breaking this down, Detroit tables games revenue amounted to $81.7m, down 18.9% year-on-year. The total was also 18.3% behind September’s total.

The other $1.1m was attributed to sports betting qualified adjusted gross receipts (QAGR), a drop of 46.3% from 2022. Sports betting QAGR was also 28.6% lower than September.
