With another casino on its way in Maryland, possibly in Prince George's, a new report shows that gambling revenue is down.
Although the three Maryland casinos—Hollywood Casino Perryville, Maryland Live Casino and The Casino at Ocean Downs—brought in a revenue of $43 million last month, the gaming revenue is still down 28.5 percent—or $3.478 million—from last year. This number doesn't factor in Maryland Live, since it opened earlier this year.
Hollywood Casino Perryville generated more than $5 million in November, while Maryland's three casinos combined to generate $43 million. Still, the Cecil County facility continues to see a major dip in revenue over last year.
Hollywood Casino saw a 40.5 percent decrease in money earned compared with November 2011, when it brought in $9,113,039.66.
The 1,500-machine facility in Perryville hauled in $5,421,639.64 last month.
Maryland Live Casino, which opened in June and operates 4,750 machines, generated $34,365,182.50 last month.
The Casino at Ocean Downs brought in $3,315,479.40 from its 800 machines.
The revenue per machine per day breaks down as follows:
- Maryland Live Casino: $241.16
- Casino at Ocean Downs: $138.14
- Hollywood Casino Perryville: $120.48
