Live Casino, the state’s largest gambling venue, came closest to matching MGM’s total, with revenue of $46.9 million, though the number represents a decrease of about 12.9 percent over September 2016.
Horseshoe Casino Baltimore also saw a decline in year-over-year revenue. The casino brought in $20.9 million, a 22.1 percent decrease.
Maryland’s three other casinos saw their revenues rise compared with last year.
