Strong business at MGM’s billion dollar plus National Harbor casino near Washington D.C. continues to bad news for other Maryland casino operations. Both Baltimore’s Horseshoe Casino and Anne Arundel County’s Maryland Live Casino saw a weaker bottom line during May.
Gambling revenues at Horseshoe were down 18.1 percent in May, or $5.2 million, from May a year ago, according to figures released by the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission. At Maryland Live, revenues retreated by $13.2 million, or 22.3 percent, from May 2016.
Meanwhile, National Harbor, open since early December, racked up $50.6 million from both slot machines and table games in May, more than double the $23.6 million grossed at Horseshoe, in South Baltimore.
