Results from last month reflected a downward trend year-over-year.

The state of Maryland has released its casino revenue results for the month of May. Its six casinos brought in a combined total of more than $169.4m from both slots and table games during the month, according to results from Maryland Lottery and Gaming.

Earnings from slots and table games statewide reflected a decrease of more than 5% year-over-year.

Out of the state’s six privately owned casinos, MGM National Harbor took the lead last month with the largest May revenue. The casino contributed more than $71.7m to the combined total. Live! Casino & Hotel and Horseshow Casino grabbed second and third-placed spots, pitching in $58.9m and $17.5m respectively.

During May, Ocean Downs Casino generated $8.4m in revenue, while Hollywood Casino yielded $7.6m. Rocky Gap Casino ended the month with $5.2m in revenue.

Contributions to both the state and the Education Trust Fund also fell last month when compared to numbers from a year ago. Maryland’s casinos sent nearly $78.9m to the state, down 3.6% year-over-year.

Last month, the Education Trust Fund received more than $51.4m from casino gaming revenue. The funds are designated to support local communities that neighbor Maryland’s casinos, as well as to support minority and women-owned businesses.

Maryland recently joined seven other US states that make up the SuperBook Sports US family through the launch of the SuperBook Sports Maryland app. Players statewide can access the SuperBook Sports Maryland app, as well as the company’s website to place wagers.

Along with Maryland, the Las Vegas-based company currently operates in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Jersey, Tennessee, Iowa and Ohio.

Michael Hershman - Dispelling casino 'myths:' New York needs to lose fear of the unknown

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.

Five years ago, before the mass proliferation of social media we see today – and even before the Covid-19 pandemic – I think you would be hard pressed to find a CEO talking about “Instagrammable moments.” KPIs w...
