The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board says revenue from slot machines totaled $216 million last month, down 5.7 percent from a year ago.

Counting only the 11 casinos that were also open in March of 2013, revenue slid 6.7 percent.

Nine of those casinos posted year-over-year losses, led by Presque Isle Downs and Casino and Harrah's Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack, each down nearly 13 percent.

Hollywood Casino at Penn National in Grantville, Dauphin County, saw a drop of a little more than 10 percent.

Valley Forge Casino Resort reported an 18 percent gain.

March tax revenue from the play of slot machines was nearly $116 million.
