United States.- The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency has reported that the state’s six casinos brought in $168.5m in revenue in August, a 12.6 per cent increase from the same period last year, when casino capacity was at 50 per cent due to Covid-19 countermeasures.

The state received more than $71m from that, with a majority, roughly $51.8m, going to Maryland’s Education Trust Fund.

MGM National Harbor and Live! Casino & Hotel in Hanover led the way with $67.4m and $59.5m in revenue respectively. Horseshoe Casino brought in just over $18m while the state’s three other casinos – Ocean Downs Casino, Hollywood Casino Perryville and Rocky Gap Casino – saw revenue of below $10m.
