Pennsylvania Casinos Have Best Month Ever For Table Games
Revenue From The Tables Nears $80 Million Last Month
Gross revenue from gambling at table games in Pennsylvania casinos during March 2017 was up two percent compared to March of last year, according to figures released this week by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
March’s gross table games revenue was $79,543,775 compared to $77,914,245 in revenue produced by the 12 casinos during March 2016.
Poker contributed $5.45 million, up 5.4 percent year-over-year.
Regulators also said that this year’s March revenue was the highest month ever for table games revenue, eclipsing the previous high from last March.
Total tax revenue from table games play during March 2017 was $12,837,539, with an average of 1,231 tables in operation statewide on a daily basis.
Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem led the way in the table games with $21,364,994, up 8.6 percent compared to the $19,676,814 won in March 2016.
Pennsylvania lawmakers are currently mulling over a plan to bring casino games to the internet in order to grow the state’s casino gambling market.
Officials believe that online gambling could add $300 million annually to the state’s gambling market. Online gaming backers argue that internet betting can increase revenue at brick-and-mortars as well.
Pennsylvania is the second largest casino gambling market in America, but the market has been at about $3 billion since 2011. Pennsylvania has 12 casinos, and all of them would be allowed to venture into online betting under legislative proposals.
