Hollywood Casino Perryville added table games Thursday, becoming the first Maryland casino to do so after November's ballot initiative.

The Cecil County facility, which added 12 tables for games like blackjack and roulette as well as eight poker tables, made $6 million in February, down from $11.4 million in February of last year.

Maryland casinos in total brought in $47.8 million in revenue in February, up from $44.3 million the month before.

Maryland Live in Anne Arundel County accounted for $38.3 million, or more than 86 percent of the total haul. Analysts expect the casino's profits to climb even further when it adds 122 tables of its own on April 11.

The Casino at Ocean Downs brought in $3.5 million, roughly the same as in February 2012.
