MGM National Harbour Opening Gives Maryland Casino Record Revenue For December

MGM National Harbor in Prince George’s County, which opened on Dec. 8, has earned $41,934,028 from both slot machines and table games in just over three weeks.

Under Maryland law, casino income supports small, minority and female-owned businesses, local impact grants, and the state’s horse racing industry, as well as the Maryland Education Trust Fund.

MGM National Harbor’s December contribution to the education trust fund was $12,624,344. Donations to the state at six casinos in Maryland in December 2016 are recorded in the attached spreadsheet and can be found online (카지노사이트 순위).

“We expected December to be a record month, and we’re very excited about the future of Maryland’s casino program,” said Gordon Medenica, Maryland’s director of lottery and gaming. “MGM National Harbor is an outstanding facility that is ideally located, and we’re confident that its success will fuel the continued growth in revenue supporting critical state programs.”

MGM National Harbor’s total game revenue per unit in December was $313.59 for slot machines, $5,343.76 for banked table games, and $1,508.57 for non-banked table games. MGM National Harbor operates 3,237 slot machines and 165 (banked 126 and non-banked 39) table games.

While the opening of MGM National Harbor drew local, national, and international attention, three of Maryland’s first five casinos – the Horsch Casino Baltimore and Ocean Downs’ casinos and Rocky Gap Casino Resorts – saw sales increase in December. The Hollywood Casino Ferryville and the Maryland Live Casino saw a drop compared to December 2015.

“Given the intense spotlight on the opening of MGM National Harbor, December numbers for other casinos in Maryland are in line with our expectations, and we are pleased to see an increase in Ocean Downs, Rocky Gap, and especially in Horschoux,” Medenica said. “I am confident that as our casino program continues to evolve, the six casinos will establish their respective unique presence in the marketplace.”

With MGM only running for a partial month, Maryland Live Casino continued to generate the highest revenue in the state, totaling $48,032,057 for both slot machine and table games in December. Maryland Live’s gross daily gaming revenue per unit was $255.60 for slot machines, $3,116.84 for banked table games, and $1,160.97 for non-banked table games. Maryland Live’s December 2016 revenue was down $6,152,008, or 11.4% from December 2015. Maryland Live Casino operates 3,906 slot machines and 209 (banked 157 and non-banked 52) table games.
