Maryland casinos set a single-month record for gaming revenue in March as capacity restrictions were eased or lifted entirely at the state’s six casinos. The casinos brought in $169.2 million in March, an increase of about $5.9 million or 3.6% over March 2019, which held the previous single-month record of $163.3 million. Maryland’s casinos were closed from March 16 to June 19 last year as the Covid-19 pandemic took hold in Maryland. This spring, four of the six casinos saw their previous capacity restrictions of 50% lifted entirely under an order from Gov. Larry Hogan on March 12.
