BANGOR — Hollywood Casino in Bangor is expecting to surpass last year's revenue totals, with a drop in slot machine income being made up for with an increase in revenue from table games.

General Manager John Osborne says with $58.5 million in net revenue with one month left this year, the casino, barring a dismal December, will surpass its $59.5 million yield from 2011.

Osborne tells the Bangor Daily News he expects the facility to bring in about $4.5 million this month, which would mean breaking the $61.7 million record in 2010.

Osborne says a drop in slot revenue has been made up at blackjack, roulette and other games. The casino plans on adding craps tables in 2013.

The casino has also seen a boost in visitors from Canada this year.
