Detroit's gaming industry is about to have another hit to their revenue according to a global management consulting company. This is related to Ohio's four new casinos that are about to open.

The company estimates a loss of about $30 million by 2015 in tax revenues. Competition from Ohio may attract gamblers away from Detroit's casinos.

Last year, Detroit's general fund budget was $1.2 billion. $177 million of that money came from casino gaming.

80% of the revenue earned from the Detroit casinos comes from visitors that live in a 150 mile radius.

Currently, Horseshoe Casino Cleveland is prepping for its opening on Monday. A few weeks later on May 29 Toledo's Hollywood Casino will open. The two remaining casinos in Cincinnati and Columbus are hopeful to open soon as well.
