Turtle, are you calculating net? Gross was $4 million for Rocky Gap. Still way on the bottom in Maryland but only 2 mil and change from Ocean Downs (no table games). In terms of casinos the same size as Rocky Gap in the US, LACO is second behind Valley Forge in PA.
Cno. google "Maryland gaming commissioners" about the 5th or 6th of
each month. About the 2nd or 3rd item will the Maryland Gaming
Commission. Click it and then click the monthly report. The report
will give both gross and net. RG taxes are 50%, so casino share
is 50%. Also, remember machine cost from purchase to repairs is
Maryland cost. Slot purchase depreciation and repairs generally
run 10% to 15% of slot profit, so comparing slot locations is
apples and oranges.
