Pa. Table Games Bring in $34.5 Million in First Month

Pennsylvania’s Gaming Control Board released revenue figures last week for the first full month of legalized table games at the state’s nine casinos. The venues took in a combined $34.6 million in revenue from the table games alone for the month of August, which translated to more than $4.8 million in state tax money. Leading the pack was Parx Casino, in Bensalem, Pa., with more than $6.3 million in gross revenue, followed by Harrah’s Chester Casino and Racetrack, with $5.9 million, and Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem, with nearly $4.3 million. The fact that the top three grossing casinos are all in the eastern part of the state could be significant for nearby gambling destinations such as Atlantic City.
