Overall, Michigan iGaming operators took in $174,164,903 in total adjusted gross receipts in April, compared to March’s total of $194,469,136.

Retail casinos in the state had $107,872,951 in total adjusted gross receipts during the fourth month of the year, down 11.8% from March’s total of $122,262,266.
