The three Massachusetts casinos saw a drop in gross gaming revenue in April, from March’s figure of US$104.5m to $101.2m, but overall GGR for the state increased.
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission reports that there were decreases across the board in table and slots GGR at Encore Boston Harbor, MGM Springfield and Plainridge Park Casino.
But the former’s GGR posted the biggest drop, down to $63.9m from March’s $66.2m.
However, revenue for sports betting both land-based and online in the Bay State reached $58.9m in April, up from $47.1m in March.
There was a subsequent rise in tax collection from sports betting in Massachusetts to $11.8m but a slight decrease for the casinos to $28.5m.
Overall, though, total taxable gaming revenue in the state jumped to $160.1m in April from $151.6m in March.
