According to a report published by the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, Maryland’s six casinos brought in nearly $163 million in February revenue, accounting for a 29.1% increase in a year-over-year comparison.
The state-reported casino figures include revenues from table games and slot machines.
The state also received more than $68 million from the casinos, with nearly $50 million going to the Education Trust Fund. In addition to education, a small portion of gaming revenue goes to local impact grants, the horse racing industry and minority-and women-owned businesses.
Back in January, numbers escalated to $153 million, which represented a 20% rise from the same period in 2021, when venues were operating under capacity restrictions due to COVID-19. MGM National Harbor also had the lead, generating $67 million, nearly 33% more than the same month in 2021.
