Slot Machine Revenue Drops 7.5 Percent In February

The Gaming Control Board Wednesday reported total revenue generated through the play of slot machines at Pennsylvania casinos during February was down 7.54 percent compared to the amount generated a year ago.
According to the report, this February's gross revenue at the twelve operating casinos from slot machine play was $181,178,730 compared to $195,945,210 of gross revenue in February 2013. Tax revenue generated in February of this year just from slot machine play was $96,921,946.
The Board noted that gross revenue from slot machine gaming was likely impacted by continued snow and cold weather throughout Pennsylvania in February.
In a comparison of just the eleven casinos operating in February 2014 that were also open for the full month of February 2013, revenue was 8.4 percent lower this year.
