Maryland’s six privately owned casinos brought in a combined revenue of $152.3 million in May, down 2.7 percent from the same month a year prior.

The year-over-year decline was also present in two of the state’s largest casinos, with MGM National Harbor and Horseshoe Casino Baltimore both posting revenue decreases in May of 5.1 percent and 14.6 percent, respectively.

The latest report from Maryland Lottery and Gaming show that the total monthly revenue collected from the state’s casinos have for the most part experienced a steady rise this year — with the exception of a small drop between January and February. The industry also set a new record in March when revenue totals peaked at $163.3 million.

Revenue from the casinos was $156.6 million one year ago in May 2018.
