Maryland casinos brought in $86.8 million in revenue during October, a 30 percent increase over the same month last year and a new record.
Last October — before the Horseshoe Casino Baltimore came on line — the state's casinos generated $66.4 million. Not including the Horseshoe, revenue at the state's other four casinos fell 3.1 percent year-over-year.
At the Horseshoe, the state's newest gaming venue, revenue was flat from the month prior. The South Baltimore casino saw $22.5 million from both table games and slot machines in October. That was a slight uptick from the $22.4 million the casino saw during its first full month in business in September.
