Maryland Casino Revenue Still Relatively Strong

September 9th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Maryland’s casinos are operating at 50% capacity. But the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Commission said revenues are still relatively strong despite the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. The Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday that Maryland’s casinos, including Rocky Gap, made $149.5 million in revenue in August. That’s about $4.7 million less in revenue than what casinos made in August 2019. Casinos in the state had been forced to close before reopening in a limited capacity in June.  The commission said that August 2020 was the eighth-best month of revenue in the Maryland casino program’s history. August 2019 was the fourth-best month for the state’s casino revenue.
