Maryland's second slots casino on the Eastern Shore, joining the Hollywood Casino Perryville, helped bring in $10.8 million in revenue last month, the state lottery reported Monday.
The Hollywood Casino, which opened in late September, generated $7.7 million, or $165.96 daily per machine, last month. That's an improvement from December's take of $140.58 daily per machine for the Cecil County casino, which has 1,500 slot machines.
After a strong opening and first month of business, activity at the Perryville casino slipped in the fourth quarter, which is typically a slow period for the industry. Since its Sept. 27 opening, the slots parlor has averaged $185.37 daily per machine.
