The Massachusetts Gaming Commission Releases July 2020 Gross Gaming Revenue for Plainridge Park Casino, MGM Springfield and Encore Boston Harbor
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission reported today that July 8-31, 2020 generated approximately $45 million in Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) at Plainridge Park Casino (PPC), MGM Springfield and Encore Boston Harbor. The results reported today reflect the GGR collected after casinos were permitted to reopen—with COVID-19 related restrictions in place—in Phase 3 of the Commonwealth’s phased reopening, which began July 6, 2020.
PPC, a category 2 slots facility, is taxed on 49% of GGR. Of that total taxed amount, 82% is paid to Local Aid and 18% is allotted to the Race Horse Development Fund. MGM Springfield and Encore Boston Harbor, category 1 resort-casinos, are taxed on 25% of GGR; those monies are allocated to several specific state funds as determined by the gaming statute.
To date, the Commonwealth has collected approximately $595 million in total taxes and assessments from PPC, MGM and Encore since the respective openings of each gaming facility.
