Maryland's casinos draw about $66 million in February

Maryland's four casinos pulled in about $66 million in February, slightly less than in January and well below many months in 2013.

The casinos haven't gotten off to a strong start in 2014, compared to past months, perhaps because the harsh winter weather made travel more difficult.

The combined statewide revenue for February was $66,014,094, according to the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency. That's the third lowest monthly total since Rocky Gap Casino Resort, the state's fourth casino, opened in May.

During many months in 2013, revenues reached nearly $70 million.

Maryland Live Casino at Arundel Mills pulled in $52.3 million; Hollywood Casino Perryville generated about $7 million; Casino at Ocean Downs generated about $3.5 million; and Rocky Gap about $3.1 million.

Excluding Rocky Gap, the state's three other casinos are performing worse than in recent months but well above where they were a year ago thanks to the addition of table games. The $66 million generated last month is nearly a third more than in February 2013.
