Maryland today is one of the top poker markets in the country, which it proved in a span of 4 years. 2013 saw a changed Maryland with live dealer games legalised and that the casinos also got the ability to stay open 24/7, which is very important for poker.
Out of 6 casinos in the state two don’t have poker. A total $3.76 million was collected from the four poker rooms combined last month. In all, the combined collection of these four Maryland poker rooms was somewhere over $19 million in 2017.
MGM, which is about 30 miles apart from the Maryland Live had a higher collection so far, this month.
With the impressive numbers, MGM stood ahead of its competitors by generating revenue of $1.69 million, following it behind was Maryland Live at $1.4 million. While Horseshoe Baltimore and Hollywood Casino Perryville made a collection around $565,000 and $88,000 respectively.
Leaving apart the recently opened MGM National Harbor’s poker room, total revenue of $2.94 million was generated in May 2016, increasing the revenue by 27.8% over the year.
A total of $14.96 million was collected by the casinos within the first five months of 2016.
