The Michigan Gaming Control Board (“MGCB” or “Board”) released the June, 2012 total adjusted revenue figures for the three Detroit casinos – MGM Grand Detroit Casino, MotorCity Casino and Greektown Casino.  Overall, revenue for the Detroit Market was down 1.6% in June, 2012 from the same reporting period last year. Specifically, revenue for MGM Grand Detroit Casino and Greektown Casino was down by .004%, and 5.8%, respectively while revenue for MotorCity Casino had increased by .002% during June, 2012 in comparison to the same month last year.

Revenues for the month of June, although slightly lower than the same reporting period last year, fared well.  Although the Hollywood Casino in Toledo, Ohio recently opened, the slight decline in revenues was likely due to other factors.  Historically, the MGCB has reported decreases in revenue for the summer months, and any significant impact from the Ohio casino is not expected to impact revenues substantially, if at all, for three to six months.
