MGM National Harbor was not the top Maryland casino for gaming revenue in October.
Maryland Lottery and Gaming reports Live! Casino & Hotel at Arundel Mills had $60.8 million in gaming revenue in October, up 22.7% from a year ago. MGM National Harbor had $55.9 million in gaming revenue last month, down 1.2% from a year ago.
This is only the second time since MGM National Harbor opened in December 2016 that Live! has topped it for full-month gaming revenue, the other being February 2017.
All counted, Maryland’s six casinos generated $155 million in gaming revenue in October, up 8.6% from a year earlier, when casinos were limited to 50% capacity.
Of that total, $70 million goes to various state programs, including $50 million to the state’s Education Trust Fund.
Horseshoe Casino’s October gaming revenue was down 0.9% from a year earlier, to $17.2 million. Gaming revenue at the state’s three smaller casinos — Ocean Downs, Hollywood Casino, and Rocky Gap — were all roughly 10% higher than last October.
