Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

Maryland’s casino industry had an uptick in revenue in December from the previous month and also from the same month in 2022.

For December 2023, total revenue generated by the state’s six casinos was almost $165.63 million. That was an increase of 5% from November (when it was about $157.72 million) and slightly up 0.3% from December 2022 (about $165.18 million). 

The December Maryland sports betting report will land later this month.

Money paid to the state in December 2023 from casino revenues was $70.2 million, with about $50.66 million of that going toward the Education Trust Fund.  While the lion’s share of casino tax money goes toward education in Maryland, other money goes toward assisting the communities and jurisdictions where the casinos are located, as well as to the state’s horse racing industry, and to small, minority- and women-owned businesses.
