Pennsylvania Casinos Set Revenue Record

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

This week the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board reported that the Keystone State's land casinos set a revenue record in the month of March, hauling in $309.1 million during the period.

The 12 casinos saw slot and table game revenues rise 2.9% to $309.1 million, beating the previous record of $300.5 million set one year ago. The big boost came in table game revenues, which were up $3 million to $82.5 million. Slots brought in $226.6 million, which is the third highest total ever recorded.

Parx Casino was the biggest earner for the month, bringing in $56.8 million (up 4% from last year), while Sands Bethlehem hauled in $50.9 million (up 8.9%), while Rivers Casino was third at $35.7 million (down 6.6%).

Sportsbetting was big business for Pennsylvania, with $44.5 million in wagering and $5.52 million in revenues, thanks in large part to the NCAA Men's basketball tournament.

Pennsylvania will also be seeing a boost with online betting coming later this year, letting those within the state's borders wager from their computers or mobile devices. It'll be interesting to see how the state does, as it has a large population and neighbors New Jersey, which has brought in millions due to the activity.

Well, they've already doing great in terms of revenues and that's even before online sportsbetting still doesn't been implemented...so that creates even more space for further growth I guess, but it's quite logical tendency I think because of the large population Pennsylvania has as Dustin mentioned above.
