Pennsylvania slot revenue increases in January

8 February 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board posted on its website the monthly report for total gross revenue and tax revenue generated from the play of slot machines at casinos during January.

According to the report, gross revenue from slot machines at the 12 casinos increased 2.1% in January of this year to $184,811,874 compared to the $180,963,004 in gross revenue that was 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% 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.

Tax revenue in January of this year was $98,750,980.

The average number of slot machines operating throughout Pennsylvania was 26,229 in January 2016 compared to 26,355 in January 2015.
