Pa. table games revenue up sharply over last year

Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania's casino regulators say gross revenue from table games rose 12% last month compared to January 2012.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said Friday that table games revenue at 11 casinos exceeded $59 million in January, and generated tax revenue of nearly $9 million.

The number of tables was also up to 1,026. That figure was 962 a year earlier. The Sands casino in Bethlehem leads the state, reporting nearly $14 million in table games revenue last month.

Overall revenue, when slot machines were factored in, was almost $248 million last month. That's a year-over-year increase of just below 2%.
