Maryland casino revenue drops in April

Maryland casinos experienced a decrease in revenue for April after a record-breaking March.

The four casinos brought in a total of $71.46 million during the month. It’s a far cry from the $77.85 million they raked in during March, but still represents the second-highest monthly revenue for the state’s casinos.

The  Casino at Ocean Downs saw the greatest decrease in revenue from March, 12.8 percent. Even Maryland Live, which has led the others in revenue by far since its opening, experienced an 8.6 percent drop in revenue.

Compared to April 2013, revenue has increased 15 percent for Maryland’s casinos, excluding Rocky Gap Casino Resort, which opened in May 2013.
