In Fiscal Year 2020 (July 2019 through June 2020), Maryland’s casinos generated $1,279,974,107 in gaming revenue. The total is $480,434,471 (-27.3%) less than the $1,760,408,578 generated during FY2019.

Casino contributions to the state for FY2020 were $529,121,317, a decrease of $194,321,316 (-26.9%) compared to the $723,442,633 in contributions during FY2019.

Casino gaming revenues also support communities and jurisdictions where the casinos are located, as well as Maryland’s horse racing industry.

Maryland’s six casinos began welcoming back guests in June after being closed for three months due to COVID-19. The casinos have implemented robust social distancing and sanitation guidelines that include 50% capacity limits, reduced numbers of slot machines in operation, reduced seating at table games, temperature screenings and a requirement that all employees and patrons wear facemasks.

Four of the casinos reopened on June 19, and the remaining two reopened on June 26. As part of Maryland’s effort to halt the spread of COVID-19, the casinos were closed at 12 a.m. on March 16. Casino operators coordinated for months with local and state public health officials on their reopening protocols.

“The casinos worked intensely with us and with each other to share best practices from across the gaming industry as they developed their reopening plans,” said Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director Gordon Medenica. “There was great cooperation on all sides, and a true focus on ensuring that the casinos are safe for both employees and customers.”

Total gaming revenues in June 2020 were $34,944,868, while casino contributions to the state were $14,572,027. In June of 2019, with all casinos operating for the full month, gaming revenues were $142,890,570, and contributions to the state were $60,075,138.
