Gross gaming revenue (GGR) in Maryland fell four percent in June to $142.89 million from $148.90 million in June 2018, state lottery and gaming officials announced this week.
In terms of year-to-year data, it’s the second month in a row that Maryland casinos brought in less revenue. Casino revenue in May was down 2.7% compared with May 2018.
“Contributions to the State of Maryland from June 2019 casino gaming revenue totaled $60,075,138, including $45,084,912 for the Education Trust Fund,” said Maryland Lottery and Gaming. “Casino gaming revenues also support local communities and jurisdictions where the six casinos are located, as well as Maryland’s horse racing industry.”
Live! Casino & Hotel leads the pack at the halfway mark of 2019 with year-to-date GGR revenue of $209 million followed by MGM National Harbor at $196.48 million, according to the report.
