PLAINVILLE, Massachusetts — Gambling revenue at Massachusetts's first casino continues to decline.
Plainridge Park Casino generated $12.9 million in gross gambling revenues in October, which is down slightly from September's $12.6 million haul, according to data released Monday by the state Gaming Commission.
The slots parlor and harness racing track has generated over $65 million since opening near the Rhode Island border in late June, but saw double digit revenues declines in August and September.
It's on track to generate about $176 million in its first full year, or about $24 million less than the state's $200 million projection. Massachusetts collects 49 percent of gross gambling revenues from Plainridge.
Lance George, Plainridge Park's general manager, says it's normal for revenues to "taper down" after opening and that the casino's profits will eventually stabilize.
