BALTIMORE (AP) - New figures show revenue continues to drop at downtown Baltimore’s new casino in the aftermath of April’s riot.

The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency reported Friday that the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore reported $21.9 million in revenue during the month of May. That’s down from $22.9 million in April. The casino had to close early for three nights in April and two nights in May to comply with a citywide curfew.

The Horseshoe opened in August.

Meanwhile, just 12 miles down the road from the Horseshoe, the Maryland Live casino in Hanover generated $58.0 million in revenue in May. That was a significant increase over April, when the casino generated $50.9 million.
