aryland casinos have set a monthly revenue record for the second time in three months.
The Maryland Lottery announced Monday that the six casinos generated $172.4 million in May. The previous single-month record was set in March 2021 with $169.2 million.
Casinos contributed $73.4 million to the state in May. That’s an increase of $9.7 million compared with the $63.7 million contributed to the state in May 2019.
Contributions to the Education Trust Fund in May were $53.3 million. That’s an increase of $5.5 million compared with May 2019. Casino revenues also support the communities where the casinos are located, Maryland’s horse racing industry, and small, minority- and women-owned businesses.
Maryland’s casinos were closed from March 16 to June 19 last year due to the pandemic.
