ALLEGANY COUNTY, Md. - The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency says the four casinos in the state generated more than $66 million in October alone.

The agency reports, that number is up more than $20 million from last year.

Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Allegany County generated $3.4 million.

Rocky Gap Casino opened its doors in May. They have more than 500 casino games and ten poker tables.

The Director of Marketing for the casino, Wanda Holtschneider said, "Ownership is very pleased with the activity here at the property. We've developed some really, really good relationships with the local community here in Allegany County, as well as some neighboring areas."

The Agency also says a good portion of that money goes to the state's education trust fund.

To date, more than $500 million has been given to the education fund. Last month alone, $26 million was contributed.

"With the educational thing I have absolutely no problem with that," said Dale Woomer from Altoona, Pa.

"I think it's wonderful," said Eleanor Hoffman of Catonsville, Md. "I think more should go to education and to support the communities that they're in. There are casinos all over and I think the people should benefit."
