Maryland’s five casinos brought in more than $97 million in state revenue last month, rising year-over-year for the 10th month in a row, according to figures released Thursday by the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency.
Revenue at the casinos was up 11 percent from September 2015, marking the strongest year-over-year gains since April. Revenues dipped from the $100.3 million reported for August as the summer season came to a close.
More activity at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore helped power the increase. The facility brought in $26.9 million, up 21.6 percent from September 2015.
Maryland Live Casino, which boasts the most slot machines and table games in Maryland, maintained its slot as the top revenue maker, reporting $53.9 million in revenue, an increase of 8.8 percent from 2015.
Rocky Gap Casino Resort had the second-highest growth rate among the five casinos, with revenue surging nearly 15 percent year-over-year to $4.4 million.
The Casino at Ocean Downs generated $5.9 million up about 3 percent from 2015.
Hollywood Casino Perryville, which opened as the state’s first casino in 2010, was the only one that saw revenues decline. It generated $5.9 million, down 4.6 percent from September 2015.
Together the five casinos have seen year-over-year revenue gains every month since November. They produced more than $100 million in four months this year, setting a record in May at $104.4 million.
