Six Maryland Casinos Report $157.7M Revenue for November

Six Maryland Casinos Report $157.7M Revenue for November
Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

In November, Maryland’s six casinos had a slight slide in revenue from the previous month. For November, casino revenue was a little more than $157.7 million.  That was a drop of about 1.3% from October.

A possible factor in the small month-to-month decrease is that there was one more Sunday in October compared to November.

In a same-month, year-over-year comparison, November 2023 revenue was a decrease of 3.5% from November 2022 (about $163.4 million)

In terms of taxes, the casino gaming contribution to the state in November was $66.15 million, which was a 1.4% drop from $67.1 in October 2023, and a decrease of 2.3% from November 2022.

Betting is legal at retail casinos, but Maryland online casinos are not yet legal.

The lion’s share of casino taxes go toward education in Maryland.  Of the $66.15 million in casino taxes for November, $47.73 million went to the Education Trust Fund. Other purposes served by casinos taxes are communities and jurisdictions where the casinos are located, Maryland’s horse racing industry, and small, minority- and women-owned businesses.
