Although slot machine revenue declined last month at Pennsylvania’s casinos, table games posted a healthy month.
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board says table games generated the highest monthly amount to date in March, 9% higher than the same month last year. Last March had set the previous record for table games revenue.
The increase helped balance the drop in slots revenue, pushing overall gross revenue from gaming 1% higher than March of 2012. The numbers were boosted by the Valley Forge Casino, which was only operating a few days during the same month last year as it opened in late March.
Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem had the highest amount of table games play and the biggest increase.
