Numbers don’t lie and this is no different of a situation. If you’re looking to gamble – don’t do it in the City of Detroit. As my readers are aware I split my time between Detroit and Las Vegas.
Well, Detroit casinos can operate at 15% capacity thanks to the wonderful liberal Governor Gretchen Whitmer. They aren’t allowed smoking and you can’t order a drink unless you’re seated at a machine. That’s right – no bars are open.
However, that’s not why I’m recommending you to not gamble in Detroit. The real reason is – the slots are tighter than your favorite pair of jeans that used to fit you before COVID-19 hit.
That’s right, just like you can’t fit into those jeans because they are too tight – so are Detroits casinos!
For the month of October, Detroit casinos which are MGM Grand Detroit, Greektown and Motor City Casino had a net win of $93.8 million of the money wagered last month.
That’s only a dip of 19% compared to October of 2019 when they were operating at 100% capacity!
MGM Resorts casino reporting gross gaming revenue (GGR) of $37.8 million. MotorCity was next at $36.3 million, and Greektown a distant third at $19.7 million.
So, while you may be able to head down to a casino in Detroit – you surely may want to reconsider your decision because it’s clear, the slots in Detroit are super tight.
