US.- The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) reported that the 12 casino operators in the state broke in April the table games revenue record set in March as they reported US$79.54 million, 10,2 percent higher than the same period last year. The figure released on Tuesday set the monthly record US$3 thousand higher than the previous top-performance in the area.
Sands Bethlehem was the top contributor to the record-breaking figures as it reported table revenue of US$21.9 million, nearly 24 percent higher than last years’ numbers. Parx Casino was the runner-up with a 6.4 percent increase year-on-year to reach US$15.4 million. Positions switched in comparison to slots take, released by the PGCB earlier this month: Parx led slots revenue with US$33.6 million and Sands Bethlehem followed with US$26.4 million in the 1.6 percent drop in the area. Overall gaming revenue reported for Pennsylvania was US$285.2 million, up 1.4 percent.
Sands Bethlehem was also planning a US$90 million expansion for its facility that would add 81 new gaming tables to its already prolific offer, plus 380 slots and two restaurants. However, said plans seem to be frozen after negotiations with MGM Resorts on a potential sale of the casino are set to stretch for some months and the future of the venue is still uncertain.
