Slot Machine Revenue Drops 24 Percent at Hollywood Casino Perryville in August

According to data released by the Maryland Lottery, Hollywood Casino ported gross slots revenue of $6.5 million in August, down $2.03 million from August of last year.
Last month, Hollywood Casino officials asked the state lottery to allow the property to reduce their number of slot machines by 400 to 500 in order to make up for dropping numbers.
Maryland casinos brought in a total of $44.6 million in revenue in August, down 7 percent from August of last year.

 The Hollywood Casino Perryville in Maryland saw a 24 percent drop in revenue from slots for the month of August when compared to August of last year. This decrease can likely be attributed to the opening of the new Maryland Live Casino at Arundel Mills.
Maryland Live is the state’s largest casino and it brought in $32.4 million in gross gaming revenue in August.
