Pennsylvania's Casinos Rake $4.9 Million From Poker In February

Revenue Basically Unchanged Year-Over-Year


Keystone State poker rooms raked a combined $4.94 million last month, according to figures from state gaming regulators.

The amount was virtually unchanged compared to the just under $4.94 million in poker revenue from January. Those two amounts brought total poker rake in Pennsylvania since the first casino opened decade ago to $382.3 million, according to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

Poker revenue in February 2016 was $5.12 million. February 2016 did have one extra day due to the leap year.

There were 225 poker tables last month, which are spread between 10 of the state’s 12 casinos.

The poker rooms raked $58.6 million in calendar year 2016, about $1 million more than revenue generated in calendar year 2015.

Pennsylvania is looking at allowing online poker, as well as other internet casino games, in order to boost revenues for the casino industry.
