HARRISBURG, Pa. – Revenue from Pennsylvania’s 12 casinos hit a record high in the just-completed fiscal year, as dollars lost by gamblers rose 3.6 per cent.
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said Monday revenue from slot machines and tables games exceeded $3.2 billion in the 12 months ending June 30.
That was $86 million above the previous record high, in the 2012-13 fiscal year. It was $112 million above last fiscal year.
Slots revenue of nearly $2.4 billion was up 2.3 per cent for the year. Table games revenue of $839 million was up nearly 8 per cent.
Seven casinos saw increases in both categories. Only Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in suburban Harrisburg saw declines in both categories.
The gambling board estimates combined tax revenue for the year was $1.4 billion, the second-highest ever.
This story has been corrected to show the combined tax revenue was the second highest, not a record high.
