Maryland’s six casinos generated a combined $145.2 million in revenue in April, a 1.2% increase from the same month last year, state lottery and gaming officials announced Tuesday.

The combined total put April in the top 10 highest-revenue months for the state’s casinos after a record-setting $163.3 million in revenue in the previous month March.

Four of the six saw year-over-year gains in April.

MGM National Harbor, the state’s newest casino, led the pack with $60.8 million in revenue from slots and table games — a 5.3% increase from the previous April, according to the Lottery and Gaming Control Agency. MGM has profited from its proximity to Washington, D.C., and Virginia, which don’t have their own casinos.

Live Casino and Hotel in Anne Arundel County took second place with $47.8 million in revenue last month, a 2.2% increase from the previous April. The Horseshoe Casino Baltimore’s $19.7 million in revenue from slots and table games was a 9.6% drop from the same month a year ago.
