The Gaming Control Board says the state's 11 casinos brought in $55.3 million in gross revenue from table games in February. That's a decline of 2.1 percent from $56.6 million in February 2012, which had an extra day because it was a leap year.

Presque Isle Downs Casino in Erie was down more than 45 percent. It's facing new competition from a casino in Cleveland.

Earlier this month, gaming regulators said gross revenue from slot machines was down more than 9 percent in February.

When combined with the table games figures released Monday, that means total gross gaming revenue in Pennsylvania was down 7.7 percent last month.
