(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvania casinos are reporting record revenue totaling more than $3.2 billion last year.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board says the figure is 1.25% higher than the $3.17 billion in gross revenue recorded in 2015.

Officials said slot machine revenue was slightly down last year from the year before, but revenue from table games reached a record high.

The board said it also marked the sixth straight calendar year in which total casino revenue topped $3 billion.
