For the first time ever, Pennsylvania has reported greater casino revenue numbers for an entire year than neighboring New Jersey, home to Atlantic City.

Pennsylvania gaming officials announced Wednesday that casinos statewide took in $3.16 billion from gamblers. New Jersey reported $3.05 billion a week ago.

Pennsylvania’s figure is a 4.4-percent gain from 2011. Atlantic City fell eight percent.

Pennsylvania has 11 casinos, but two more are on their way, including one in Philadelphia. Atlantic City has 12 brick-and-mortars, but is looking at online gaming to help its industry.
