Hollywood Casino to return slot machines
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The casino in Perryville has notified Maryland officials that it plans to return 400 to 500 slot machines to the state because of declining revenues.
Bill Hayles, vice president and general manager of Hollywood Casino, sent a letter on Friday to state Sen. Nancy Jacobs to let her know the casino plans to return about one-third of its 1,500 machines.
The state leases slot machines to its casinos. Hayles says revenues at the Perryville casino have declined since the June opening of the state's largest casino in Anne Arundel County.
The casino expects to lose more business when a casino in Baltimore opens in 2014.
