Casinos are generating record-breaking revenue in Maryland.

Maryland officials say the state's four casinos brought in nearly $78 million in revenue last month.

The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency claims Maryland Live Casino in Anne Arundel County led the group with nearly $62 million from slot machines and table games. That's a 38.5 percent increase since March 2013.

Hollywood Casino Perryville generated nearly $8 million from slots and table games, a 16 percent decline compared to last March. Casino at Ocean Downs generated more than $4 million from slot machines, that's a 5 percent increase from March 2013.

Rocky Gap Casino Resort, which opened in May last year in Allegany County, generated nearly $4 million from slot machines and table games.
