Maryland made more tax revenue from sports gambling in March than the previous three months combined as free bets declined and March Madness drew in millions more in wagers. Maryland received $5.3 million in taxes from sports gambling in March, according to the Maryland Gaming Commission, nearly 90% higher than the February figure of $2.8 million and more than any month since mobile gambling started in the state in November. In total, Marylanders made nearly $386 million in bets in March, an increase of about $46.5 million over February.
