Maryland’s four gambling casinos generated revenue of more than $66.2 million in January 2014, 43 percent more than in the prior year, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency announced Wednesday.

Maryland Live Casino in Hanover was responsible for about 81 percent of the total amount, collecting $53.7 million from both slot machines and table games.

Hollywood Casino Perryville in Cecil County took in $6.3 million from slots and table games during the month, and the Casino at Ocean Downs in Worcester County generated $3.2 million from slot machines (the casino doesn’t have any table games).

Lastly, Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Allegany County, the smallest of the state’s gaming venues, brought in $3 million from slots and table games during the month.

January’s total was $18.9 million, or 43 percent, higher than the same month in 2013, according to the state agency.
