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.
