Table games play in Pennsylvania started the new fiscal year with a 6.1% increase, but it was not enough to erase a decline in slots play in July . Year to year gaming revenue was off by 1.7% for the month.
Pennsylvania’s 12th casino, Lady Luck at Nemacolin, opened in July and helped boost table games revenue for the month. Six casinos saw increases in table games play, with the biggest boost at Parx. Five others saw slight declines for the month of July.
Doug Harbach, spokesman for the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, says gaming in Pennsylvania is stable now after several years of rising revenues. He adds that revenue for property tax relief has remained steady for the last several years.
