Gaming Control Board Begins Posting Gaming Revenue Reports On Web Site

HARRISBURG: The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has begun a weekly posting on its web site of gaming revenues from licensed operators. The reports provide a breakdown on wagering, payouts to patrons and the amount of machines operating.

Gaming Control Board Executive Director Anne Neeb said these reports are another step by the agency to provide information about Pennsylvania’s newest industry.

“The gaming industry is up and running in the Commonwealth, and citizens are very interested in seeing exactly how much money is being generated,” Neeb explained. “The amount of revenues at these facilities has been tremendous and it is important that this information be available.”

The reports will continue to expand as new slots casinos begin operation. Thus far, Mohegan Pocono Downs in Wilkes-Barre and Philadelphia Park in Bensalem are operating. Three additional slots casinos at existing horse racing tracks are expected to open over the next several months. Those facilities are Harrah’s Chester Downs in Chester, Presque Isle Downs in Erie, and The Meadows in Washington County. Later in 2007, a sixth facility at Penn National Race Track in Grantville is expected to begin slots operation.
