Maryland’s two casinos continue to be cash cows for the state.

Hollywood Casino Perryville in Cecil County generated $9,606,400 in May, according to the Maryland Lottery. That brings the fiscal year-to-date revenue to $73,828,300 for the facility.

Casino at Ocean Downs in Worcester County generated $3,687,800 in May, bringing its fiscal year-to-date revenue to $16,615,700.

Revenue for the month of May totaled $13,294,200.  About half is earmarked for state education programs, lottery officials said Monday.   The cumulative fiscal year total for both facilities is $90,444,000.

Maryland's slots program was created in 2007.  Hollywood Casino Perryville has 1,500 machines, and Ocean Downs opened with 750 machines, the Washington Post reported. Both sites are authorized to operate as many as 2,500 machines.

Three additional casinos are slated to open in Maryland. 

A detailed breakdown of the casino revenue and how that money is being used can be found on slots.mdlottery.com.
