Total tax revenue from table games play during February was USD 10.7 with an average of 1,229 tables in operation statewide on a daily basis.
The PGCB said in a press release on Thrusday the state’s 12 casinos posted table games revenue of $66,302,623, compared to $68,187,957 in revenue produced in February 2016.
The board noted the comparison month of February 2016 occurred in a leap year resulting in an extra day of gaming play last year.
Table games revenue at The Meadows Casino in North Strabane Township, reported at $2,655,641, was up 1.08 percent from the $2,627,269 wagered in February 2016
At Pittsburgh’s Rivers Casino, table games revenue plummeted 21.29 percent, to $4,379,663, while Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin in Farmington also fell 41.61 percent to $302,076 from the $517,343 collected in February of a year ago.
The decrease in table games revenue coupled with the earlier reported 4 percent decrease in slots revenue for February resulted in an overall gaming revenue decrease for the month of approximately 3.6 percent, according to PGCB.
