This story was published more than 3 years ago.

February's betting numbers have been published by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, showing that revenues were up slightly for betting as a whole, although sportsbetting revenues were down a whopping 79.4% from January.

The overall betting revenues for the month were $304.3 million, up 0.5% from the month prior and up 13.8% from the same month last year. Sportsbetting was a down heavily for the month, with revenues down 79.4% from January 2020 to $4.7 million. The number was up 147.4% from February of last year, though.

Land-based slot revenue was up 4.9% to $199.7 million, and table game revenues were up 6.6%.

It's likely that numbers for March will dip, as casinos were ordered to close to stop the spread of Covid-19, which has caused many states to also shutter their casinos, including Nevada.
