Maryland Casinos Generate $68.7 Million During March

Casino gaming revenue contributes $28.3 million to the state

 

(Baltimore) – Maryland Lottery and Gaming today announced that March 2020 gaming revenues for the state’s six casinos were $68,657,232. The total was substantially limited by the closure of all six casinos at 12 a.m. on March 16, due to the coronavirus.

In conjunction with his March 5 declaration of a state of emergency, Governor Larry Hogan issued a March 15 executive order to close the casinos as part of the State of Maryland’s effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

March 2020 casino revenues decreased $94,605,616 (-57.9%) compared to March of 2019, when the casinos generated a single-month record of $163,262,848.

Contributions to the State of Maryland from March 2020 casino revenue totaled $28,273,287, including $21,201,796 for the Education Trust Fund. Casino gaming revenues also support local communities and jurisdictions where the six casinos are located, as well as Maryland’s horse racing industry.

Maryland has six privately owned casinos that offer both slot machines and table games: MGM National Harbor in Prince George’s County; Live! Casino & Hotel in Anne Arundel County; Horseshoe Casino Baltimore in Baltimore City; Ocean Downs Casino in Worcester County; Hollywood Casino Perryville in Cecil County; and Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Allegany County.
