slotsMaryland Lottery and Gaming today announced that monthly combined revenues for the state’s casinos reached a new high of $103,891,225 in April 2016. The total surpassed the previous best month, July 2015, which saw casinos generate $98.95 million.

    another great milestone? for who?

    Do you realize the state has figured out yet another way to get an additional 100 million out of your pockets? And people are lined up to give it to them.

      Ah, another person that thinks just because they don’t like or approve of an activity then no one should do it. You do realize that a bunch of that money would just end up in Delaware or New Jersey don’t you? I never understood the prohibition on gambling, it is my money I should be able to do what I want with it. I say good for the casinos, I hope they build more.

        I agree. People are going to go to casinos…might as well bring the money to Maryland.
