Overall gaming revenue for February 3.7% above previous year

HARRISBURG, PA:  Revenue from table games play at Pennsylvania casinos was $63.9 million in February 2015, according to a report released today by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. 

That amount is an 11.84% increase in revenue from table games play during February of this year compared to February of 2014. Together, the 12 casinos generated just under $64 million in table games revenue which, in turn, returned $9,215,810 in tax revenue to the Commonwealth.

The monthly report is now posted on the Board’s web site, www.gamingcontrolboard.pa.gov.

A total of $247,120,040 in revenue was generated when combining the February table games figures with the previously reported revenue for slot machines in that month.  This total gaming revenue during February was an increase of 3.7% over last February’s total of $238,326,952.

About the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board:

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board was established in 2004 and is tasked to oversee all aspects of the state’s casino industry. There are 10 stand-alone and racetrack casinos in operation, along with the two resort casinos.  These facilities collectively employ 17,200 people and generate an average of $3.7 million per day in tax revenue from slot machine and table games play. The largest portion of that money is used for property tax reduction to all Pennsylvania homeowners with additional tax revenue going to the horse racing industry, economic development projects, fire companies, county fairs, water and sewer projects, the Commonwealth’s General Fund, and to local governments that host casinos.
