Maryland casinos bring in $72 million in June

Maryland’s casinos reported a slight dip in revenue for the month of June, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency reported Monday, but year-over-year showed a revenue increase of 8.4 percent.

The state’s four casinos brought in a total of about $72 million in June. That’s less than the $75.8 million they raked in during May, but it’s $5.5 million more than in June 2013.

This is the first month that the state was able to give an accurate year-to-year comparison for all four of its casinos, because Rocky Gap Casino and Resort has now been operating for a full year.

As usual, the largest share of revenue came from Maryland Live, which got $56.5 million, or 78 percent of the statewide total. Hollywood Casino Perryville brought in about $7 million, the Casino at Ocean Downs about $4.8 million and Rocky Gap about $3.7 million.
