Md.'s two casinos generate $13 million in August

Slots revenue from Maryland's two casinos dropped in August, falling nearly 16 percent to $13 million, the state lottery reported Tuesday.

Hollywood Casino Perryville, which opened almost a year ago, generated $8.5 million last month, down from $10.2 million in July.

The Eastern Shore's Casino at Ocean Downs — which closed for two days because of Hurricane Irene — operated for only 29 days last month and posted $4.6 million in revenue, down from $5.3 million in July, state officials said.

State officials have said they are not evaluating the state's slots program based on month-to-month figures. Rather, the state said, it is looking at long-term performance.

Revenue from the two casinos was up in July from the previous month.
