FLINTSTONE, Md. (AP)- Maryland officials say Rocky Gap Casino Resort's revenue topped $700,000 during its first 10 days.

The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission reports that the casino made $776,133 after opening May 22. More than $600,000 was from slots.

Allegany County Commission President Michael McKay said that it's too early to think about potential revenue to the county.

State officials say combined revenue from the state's four casinos in May was more than $69 million. A comparison of revenue in May at Hollywood Casino Perryville and Casino at Ocean Downs to a year earlier shows an 8% decline, but the addition of Maryland Live Casino in June 2012 and Rocky Gap Casino Resort last month adds a year-to year benefit of more than $36 million.
