During the first nine months of 2017, the rooms collected US$33.5 million, CardPlayer reported.

One of the reasons why the poker industry in Maryland has been reporting good results is the December 2016 opening of the MGM National Harbor, which features 39 tables and collected US$1.7 million in September. Maryland Live!, the biggest facility in the state generated US$1.4 million from its 52 poker tables, whilst Horseshoe Casino Baltimore’s 23-table poker room reported US$436k.
