Sign of the Times? Detroit Casinos See Uptick in Revenues in August
Could it be an indicator of improving times?
Crain's Detroit Business reports that revenue for Detroit's three casinos rose slightly in August by 1.6 percent over the same period in 2001.
The revenues for August were 4.4 percent more than in July, "a month many thought to be a harbinger of business lost to Ohio casinos," Crain's wrote.
Of all the casinos, MGM Grand Detroit did the best, reporting $49.8 million compared to $38.1 million at the MotorCity Casino and $29.1 million at the Greektown Casino.
