Pennsylvania Poker Revenue Grows In April

Revenue From Games Up So Far In 2017


The 225 poker tables across the state of Pennsylvania raked a combined $5.05 million last month, according to figures released by state officials.

In April 2016, the poker rooms took in $5.01 million. The year-over-year gain seen last month was nearly one percent. The poker rooms raked $20.38 million through the first four months of 2017, up 1.4 percent compared to the same period last year.

Poker revenue has grown in three out of the four months this year, with February being the exception. February 2017 had one less day thanks to the leap year in 2016.

The poker rooms raked $58.6 million in calendar year 2016, about $1 million more than revenue generated in calendar year 2015. The poker rooms have raked $392.75 million since table games began in the Keystone State about a decade ago.

Here’s a look at how each poker room did last month:

Parx: $1,513,467 (45 tables)
Sands Bethlehem: $909,652 (30 tables)
SugarHouse: $655,133 (28 tables)
Rivers: $555,275 (30 tables)

The Meadows: $154,053 (14 tables)
Mount Airy: $88,626 (9 tables)
Presque Isle: $84,621 (7 tables)

Two of the state’s casinos (Valleyforge and Nemacolin) don’t have poker rooms.

While poker is inching up in the Keystone State, table games overall are booming. The 12 casinos saw April table game revenue grow 10.2 percent year-over-year to $79.54 million.
