(Harrisburg) -- State regulators say total gambling revenue at Pennsylvania's casinos in October was up slightly over the same month last year, with most of the increase coming from play at table games.

The Gaming Control Board says revenue from table games grew 10 percent in October. Not including the state's newest casino, Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin, revenue from table games grew nine percent at the 10 casinos that were open a year ago. That includes Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Dauphin County

Overall, revenue rose to $249.5 million from $243.7 million, a two percent increase. Not counting Lady Luck, revenue rose one percent.

October's biggest revenue producers were Parx Casino in suburban Philadelphia and Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem.

October revenue from slot-machine gambling was down slightly at the 10 casinos open a year ago.
