Gaming Board: Slot Machine Revenue Declined 2.2 Percent In FY 2016-17

The PA Gaming Control Board Thursday reported slot machine revenue declined 2.2 percent during the recently completed 2016/2017 state fiscal year compared to the previous fiscal year.
The findings were part of a report that provides monthly revenue figures for all 12 of the Commonwealth’s casinos.
Slot machine revenue was down in 10 of the 12 months during the fiscal year, with a 2016/2017 total of $2,336,152,508 compared to $2,388,658,549 during the 2015/2016 fiscal year. Tax revenue produced through slot machine play during the 2016/2017 Fiscal Year totaled $1,236,670,146.
The Board notes that these figures reflect just slot machine revenue and not total gaming revenue that includes table games.  The Board will provide those figures later this month when it publishes its June 2017 and Fiscal Year 2016/2017 revenue report for table games.
To date, since the opening of the first casino in November of 2006, revenue from slot machine play has totaled $22.4 billion resulting in a tax generation of $12.1 billion.
