They earned $141.2 million in total - 44.3 percent higher than in March of 2016.

The record-breaking jump was made possible by the addition of MGM National Harbor, which brought in around $50 million on its own.

MGM National Harbor opened in December, when all six casinos made more than $133 million, breaking the previous revenue record set in May 2016.
