Table games a hit at Pennsylvania casino

5 October 2010

POCONO MOUNTAINS, Pennsylvania -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- It has become abundantly clear that table games are a major hit at Pennsylvania casinos. August marked the first time that all nine of the state's casinos featured table games such as blackjack, craps and poker for a full month and, according to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, $34.6 million was brought in by the new games, meaning $4.8 million in taxes was paid to the state and nearly $700,000 went to host municipalities.

Mount Airy Casino brought in $3.4 million in table game revenue and overall saw its revenues climb 24 percent – the highest percentage gain in the state. Poker was a major draw for the casino after it opened a new room dedicated to Let It Ride, Stud Poker, Texas Hold'em and other forms of the popular game. Mount Airy also added craps, roulette and blackjack as well as an Asian-themed room offering 17 tables of baccarat, Pai Gow tiles and more. In addition, Mount Airy also features more than 2,500 of the hottest slots and video table games.

Mount Airy Casino also is home to a championship golf course and every Friday through the remainder of the season, golfers can play a round of 18 holes (including a cart) and receive $20 in free slot play at the casino for just $27.
