The state’s three brick-and-mortars, Encore Boston Harbor, Plainridge Park Casino and MGM Springfield reported GGR of $71m in August and September.
Penn National Gaming’s Plainridge Park was the only casino to see GGR increase month-to-month, earning $10m in October, up $140k.
As usual, Plainridge Park trailed Wynn-operated Encore Boston Harbor, which led the state with $41m, down $2m in September thanks to reduced table games revenue.
MGM Springfield’s GGR of $18m was a small drop from the month prior but unlike its Wynn competitor, MGM saw its losses come at the slots.
Penn National and Wynn are gearing up for the eventual legalization of sports betting in the Commonwealth.
Last month they lobbied local lawmakers that operators should control the rollout of sports betting if and when it is legalized.
Massachusetts legislators likely won’t take up a sports betting bill until 2021 at the earliest. Despite support for a sports betting bill in the state House, the Massachusetts Senate opposed the movement and in October wiped out hope for including sports wagering as part of an economic stimulus package.
Lawmakers won’t meet again until January, when sports betting will likely be back on the table.
