Manager Addresses Casino’s January Slump

February 7th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Maryland’s six casinos combined to generate $153.2 million in revenue from slot machines and table games in January, but that number is down over 8% compared to January of 2023.  For Rocky Gap Casino, the picture seems even more dreary.  In January, Rocky Gap brought in just over $3 million dollars – a decrease of 36.6% compared to January of 2023.  WCBC reached out to Brian Kurtz, General Manager at Rocky Gap – he sent a statement in response to a question about January’s revenue. In part, Kurtz said, “Rocky Gap Casino Resort and Golf was affected by adverse weather, with dramatically more winter storm activity than January of 2023. Winter storms occurred on weekends with smaller events following on mid-week days during the first three weeks of the month. Travel decisions became affected resulting in decreased visitation. We look forward to hopefully clear skies in February and the coming months.”
