    Revenue was down across the board last month but Massachusetts’ three gambling centers still generated roughly $82 million from gaming, with nearly $23 million due as the state’s monthly take.

    The Mass. Gaming Commission reported Tuesday that Plainridge Park Casino, MGM Springfield and Encore Boston Harbor together generated $82.4 million in gross gaming revenue in January, down from about $100 million of gaming revenue in December but still almost $25 million more than what the casinos and slots parlor generated in January 2021.

    January was the worst revenue month for Encore Boston Harbor since last June. The Everett casino generated just less than $54 million in gaming revenue – $27.87 million from its slot machines and another $26.08 million from its table games.
