In a news release, the commission touted the industry’s strength despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which forced casinos in the state to close before reopening in a limited capacity in June.

“The total is the eighth-best month of revenue in the Maryland casino program’s history,” the release said, adding for comparison’s sake that August 2019 was the fourth-best month for the state’s casino revenue.
