Michigan Is More Interested In Online Gambling Than Any Other State
It's been exactly a month since Michigan's casinos were allowed to launch their online gambling apps, and Michiganders are still very excited about gambling from their own homes.
The casinos are also very excited about online gambling and have already raked in a combined $115 million between 11 casinos across the state.
Michiganders have been very vocal on social media about their love of online gambling and CasinoInsider.com has tracked tweets, hashtags, and other online trending data to determine that we love online gambling more than any other state. The data showed that Michiganders were on social media promoting online gambling more than any other state, but that data should be a bit biased because we are the state that most recently allowed online gambling.
MLive.com posted an article saying that "More than 110,000 tweets with hashtags like #onlinegambling, #onlinebetting, #onlinebets, #onlinecasino, #mobilebetting, #mobilegambling and #onlinebets and phrases like “online gambling,” and “mobile sports betting,” were tracked."
