(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania casinos are reporting a slight increase in revenue from table games.

The state Gaming Control Board says revenue from table games totaled $67.9 million last month, up nearly one percent from a year ago.

It was the most money collected from table games since blackjack, roulette and other games were introduced at Pennsylvania casinos nearly four years ago.

Overall revenues at the state's 12 gambling halls were down 4.2 percent in March, because of a continuing slide in the play of slot machines.

Last month's tax revenue from table games was $9.8 million.
