Of that total, $60.2 million goes to various state programs and $45.1 million is earmarked for the state’s Education Trust Fund.

MGM National Harbor had $58.2 million in January gaming revenue, up 4.1% from a year earlier.

Live! Casino & Hotel, which has been closing the gap with MGM National Harbor, had $51.7 million in January gaming revenue, up 11.8%.

Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, the state’s third largest casino, had $19.3 million in January gaming revenue, down 4.4%.

The state’s three smaller casinos, Ocean Downs, Rocky Gap and Hollywood Casino Perryville, all had double-digit gains in year-over-year gaming revenue last month.
