When Michigan legalized online gaming in January 2021, Golden Nugget MI became one of the casino sites available.
Golden Nugget earned $50.6 million during the initial year of operation. Golden Nugget had its highest month of revenue that year, with $6.14 million in December.
Moving forward to 2022, Golden Nugget earned $72.6 million in revenue. Year on year, it was a 45.5% increase. It was slightly higher than Michigan’s total online casino growth in 2022. The online casino industry as a whole increased its revenue by 42.1% ($1.11 billion to $1.58 billion).
Golden Nugget also produced more than $6.14 million in monthly revenue seven times in 2022. The revenue reached its peak in August 2022 at $7.2 million.
Golden Nugget resumed its record-breaking streak in 2023. However, it barely beat August’s previous high of $7.21 million in revenue.
