Maryland saw a slight bump in year-over-year casino revenue last month after two months of year-over-year declines.

The latest report from Maryland Lottery and Gaming shows the state brought in $149.3 million in revenue in July from its six privately owned casinos, a 1.9% increase compared with July 2018.

Despite the statewide improvement, Baltimore’s Horseshoe Casino continued to see year-over-year declines with $19.4 million in revenue, a 5.2% drop. Ocean Downs Casino also reported lower revenue than a year ago at $8.2 million, a 5.5% decrease.

The remaining four casinos all saw their revenues grow compared with July 2018.

MGM National Harbor brought in the most money — $60.8 million, a 4.1% increase — while Hollywood Casino Perryville saw the biggest growth, with $6.5 million in revenue, a 5.9% boost.
