Gaming revenue hit an all-time high during March 2019’s operations in Pennsylvania casinos.

US.- Pennsylvania’s casino industry experienced a positive month in March, as revenue from the combined play of slot machines and table games reached an all-time monthly high during March 2019 of US$309 million.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) reported on Monday that the amount was also a 2.86% increase over March 2018, which was the only other month since casinos opened in late 2006 where overall revenue was above the US$300 million figure.

As the PGCB revealed, last month’s figures were driven by the highest single month for table games revenue of US$82.5 million coupled with the third highest monthly slot machine revenue of US$226.5 million. The previous high month for table games revenue occurred in April 2017 when US$79.5 million was generated.

Furthermore, last month’s numbers for table games were a 4.25% increase when compared to March 2018’s US$79.1 million.

The report for the board also detailed tax revenue from table games, which totalled US$13.2 million during March, with an average of 1,279 tables in daily operations statewide.

Parx Casino was the facility that reported the biggest gaming revenue in March 2019 with US$56.7 million, a 3.96% increase from March 2018. Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem totalled US$50.9 million in total gaming revenue, and Rivers Casino completed the list of the three highest scorers in Pennsylvania with US$35.7 million.
