Casino contributions to the state amounted to $70.2m in December 2023, reflecting a 0.7% increase from the previous year.

These contributions play a role in supporting the Education Trust Fund, community development, the Maryland horse racing industry and small, minority- and women-owned businesses.

Maryland's six privately owned casinos, featuring both slot machines and table games, include MGM National Harbor, Live! Casino & Hotel, Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, Ocean Downs Casino, Hollywood Casino Perryville and Rocky Gap Casino Resort.
