Maryland Casinos Generate Record Revenue of $103.9 Million During April


Maryland Lottery and Gaming today announced that monthly combined revenues for the state’s casinos reached a new high of $103,891,225 in April 2016. The total surpassed the previous best month, July 2015, which saw casinos generate $98.95 million.

Maryland’s first casino opened in September 2010, and there are now five casinos operating in the state: Hollywood Casino Perryville in Cecil County, Horseshoe Casino Baltimore in Baltimore City, Casino at Ocean Downs in Worcester County, Maryland Live Casino in Anne Arundel County, and Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Allegany County.

“This is another great milestone for Maryland’s casinos,” said Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director Gordon Medenica. “We’re looking forward to continued growth of the state’s casino industry, and of course that means more funding for important state programs.”

Casino contributions to the state go to the Maryland Education Trust Fund and also support small-, minority- and women-owned businesses, local impact grants and the state’s horse racing industry.
