Rocky Gap celebrates its first year

Rocky Gap Casino Resort is celebrating its one-year anniversary later this month.

Since opening last May with 558 slot machines and 10 table games, the casino added poker tables in October and opened a comedy club in January.

The casino’s monthly revenue has hovered between $3 million and $4 million most months, once breaking $4 million in August. Each month, Rocky Gap usually accounts for about 5 percent of Maryland’s casino revenue.

To celebrate one year of gambling in the Gap, the casino’s Bonkerz Comedy Club will host comedian Louie Anderson on May 22. The casino will also offer special prizes for some of its Rocky Gap Rewards Club members.
