Maryland's three casinos generated $43.1 million in November, about half of which went to the state's education trust fund.
Maryland Live in Anne Arundel, owned by Baltimore developer David Cordish, continues to generate a majority of that revenue, as it has since opening in June. Its 4,750 slot machines brought in $34.4 million, or about $241.16 per machine each day.
Hollywood Casino in Perryville brought in a total of $5.4 million from 1,500 machines ($120.48 per machine each day) while the Casino at Ocean Downs generated $3.3 million on 800 machines ($138.14 per machine each day.)
Monthly revenue from casinos reached a high of $48 million in July. Casino operators keep 33 percent of all earnings. Another 49.25 percent goes to the school fund and the rest is split between accounts to support horse racing purses and facilities improvement, local impact grants, the Maryland lottery and small businesses.
