Maryland’s six casinos reached a new high in March, bringing in a record revenue of $150.1 million led by growth at MGM National Harbor.

The Prince George’s County casino reported its highest-ever monthly revenue last month, generating $60.4 million from slot machines and table games. The resort, which opened on the Potomac River in December 2016, saw a 17.9 percent year-over-year increase compared with March 2017.

MGM, which cost $1.4 billion to build, has driven growth in monthly casino numbers, raking in the highest revenue among the state’s casinos every month since March 2017. The previous monthly record of $141.2 million was set a year ago.

March was a good month for other Maryland casinos, as well, with four registering an increase in earnings.

Horseshoe Casino Baltimore was the only casino to see a year-over-year slump, with $24.9 million in revenue, representing a 7.8 percent year-over-year decline.
