Gaming revenue flat in PA last fiscal year

Written by The Associated Press | Jul 16, 2013 10:18 AM

(Harrisburg) -- State regulators say total gaming revenue at Pennsylvania's 11 casinos was flat for the fiscal year that just ended, but table games alone saw a 7.4 percent increase due to growth at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem and a full year of play at Valley Forge Casino Resort. 

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board says casinos generated $3.14 billion in combined revenue from slot machines and table games during the fiscal year that ended June 30. That's up less than a tenth of a percent from the year before.

The table games numbers increased on the strength of numbers at the Bethlehem and Valley Forge facilities.

Earlier this month, the gaming board reported gross slots revenue at the casinos declined nearly 2 percent for the year.

The state's first casino opened in 2006.  

Hollywood Casino in Dauphin County opened in 2008.
