    I see nothing but favorable statements by the Lottery Commission regarding revenues.  Yet, the actual revenues, after a full 17 months of operation at Hollywood, and 14 months of operation at Ocean Downs are far below original projections.  For CY2012 Hollywood appears to be 38% below projections, while Ocean Downs is 70% below projections.

      Guest: Thank you for your feedback regarding the February 2012 slots revenue numbers detailed above. The numbers which you cite are based on 2007 projections by the Department of Legislative Services. Those estimates have since been updated to reflect today’s economic conditions. Please note that a variety of unforeseen events and circumstances — such as fluctuations in the market, weather conditions, increased competition from surrounding states, delays in construction and more — can affect revenue projections.

      The Maryland Lottery will continue to report on the state’s casino operations, providing detailed information on revenue generated.

In fact, total revenue generated through 2011 reached more than $183 million, with $89 million benefiting the Education Trust Fund.
