7 Percent Decrease In Slots, Table Games Revenues In January

Revenue from table games play at the 12 Pennsylvania casinos was $58.7 million in January 2014, a 1.12 percent  decrease in revenue from table games play during January of this year compared to January of 2013, according to the Gaming Control Board.
The monthly report also shows $8,426,650 million in tax revenue that was generated from table games this January.
Combined revenue from the play of slot machines and tables games during January was $230,498,811, a decrease of 7 percent  over last January's total of $247,622,923.
As reported earlier this month in the release of January's slot machine revenue, play at Pennsylvania's casinos was likely negatively impacted by the significant amounts of snow and extreme cold weather that affected all parts of the state and has continued into February.  Slot machine revenue for February is expected to be released by the Board during the first week of March.
