“Our revenues continue to be in line with our projections,” said Joe Weinberg, Managing Partner, The Cordish Companies. “Of great significance, the State’s overall July casino revenues clearly demonstrate oversaturation is already a serious problem for Maryland. Even with Maryland Live! only partially open andBaltimore City not open at all, July revenues at Hollywood Casino Perryville were down 32.4% as a result of competition from Maryland Live! and the Perryville facility is located over 50 miles from Maryland Live!”
