BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland officials say the state's casinos raked in a monthly record of $104.3 million in May.
Maryland Lottery and Gaming says the total surpassed the $103.9 million record established a month earlier. The May figure was $8 million higher than the same month a year ago.
The first of Maryland's five casinos opened in September 2010. Revenue from the casinos supports the Maryland Education Trust Fund, local impact grants, the horse racing industry, and small-, minority- and women-owned businesses.
