BANGOR, Maine — Maine’s only casino is reporting that April revenues increased slightly over March.

According to the Department of Public Safety’s gambling control unit, the Hollywood Slots casino in Bangor had gross revenues of $55.2 million last month. That represented a slight increase — less than half of 1 percent — over March.

It marked the fourth straight month that revenues have gone up at the casino.

The casino’s April revenues were up 17 percent from April of 2008. But the casino had only 475 slot machines last year, less than half the 1,000 machines it has now.
