Hollywood Casino Perryville’s November revenue down 33 percent

Hollywood Casino Perryville generated $7.6 million in revenue in November, a decrease of about 33 percent over the $11.4 million generated in October.

The Maryland Lottery reported Monday that each slot machine averaged $168.64 in revenue per day, which is significantly less than the $210 per machine per day the state said it would eventually average. Since the casino opened in late September, it has averaged $215.99.

The Education Trust Fund receives the highest percentage of the casino’s revenue, which amounted to $3.7 million. The casino, owned by Penn National Gaming Inc., got $2.5 million, $531,000 went to the horse racing purse account, $417,000 went to local impact grants and just less than $190,000 went to improving race tracks.

The Maryland Lottery, which gets 2 percent each month, took in just over $150,000, and $114,000 went to the state’s minority business program.

November’s numbers bring the casino’s total revenue to more than $21 million.
