Maryland casino revenues rise 10 percent in a year

Maryland's four casinos brought in $75.9 million in July, a jump of nearly 10 percent from the same month a year earlier, with the bulk of the increase coming from the state's largest casino, Maryland Live, the state lottery agency reported Tuesday.

The total for slot machines and table game revenues was up 9.7 percent, or $6.7 million, from July 2013.

Most of that increase came at Maryland Live in Arundel Mills where revenue jumped 11 percent year-over-year to $58.2 million in July.

Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Allegany County, which added 19 slot machines and seven table games since last July, had the largest percentage increase, nearly 20 percent, as its revenues rose $685,064 to nearly $4.2 million.

July revenue rose 4.6 percent to $6.1 million at the Casino at Oceans Downs in Worcester County, and remained flat at $7.5 million at Hollywood Casino in Cecil County.

A fifth gambling center, Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, is scheduled to open on August 26 near downtown.
