March 2019 Was Up To Last Year
As compared to last year the calendar shows gaining a Sunday and losing a Thursday compared to last year. This would equate to a +1% to +2% change to last year accounting for the calendar difference.
For March 2019 vs March 2018, nationwide shows revenue was up 2.4%. Keep in mind that MA posted a significant gain to prior year as MGM Springfield opened. Additionally, NJ and NY (all with one or more new property’s) and OK (expanded to 24-hour gaming) are a significant portion of these gains and if were not in the figures, the results would have been a very small gain.
