January Slot Machine Revenue Up 2.1 Percent Over 2015

The PA Gaming Control Board Tuesday reported total gross revenue and tax revenue generated from the play of slot machines at casinos rose 2.1 percent in January to $184,811,874 compared to the $180,963,004 in gross revenue generated in January 2015.
Prior to the winter storm blanketing most of Pennsylvania during the next to last weekend of the month, slots casino revenue was up almost 5 percent when comparing the first 21 days of January 2016 against January 2015.
While most casinos were able to remain open during the storm, difficulties for patrons in reaching the facilities led to weekend revenues that were much lower than normal.
