The American Gaming Association (“AGA”) recently released an economic impact study related to commercial casino gaming in the state of Michigan. The study, completed by Oxford Economics, provides direct, indirect, and induced economic impacts of commercial casinos on a statewide basis in 2013.

According to the report, during 2013, Michigan’s commercial casino industry generated approximately $1.44 billion in revenues, which generated 8,800 direct jobs, including approximately 7,500 commercial casino jobs and nearly 1,300 jobs associated with ancillary spending.

“This study shows that gaming is driving big results in Michigan,” stated Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the AGA. “However, given increased competition and changing consumer demands, our future success depends on strong partnerships with policymakers that allow us to innovate, reinvent, and create jobs.”

The report also notes that Michigan’s commercial casino industry contributed more than $2.8 billion of economic activity in 2013.
