he Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board reported Tuesday that slot machine revenue increased 1.1% during the recently completed 2018/2019 state fiscal year compared to the previous fiscal year.
The findings were part of a report posted on the Board's website that provides monthly revenue figures for all 12 Commonwealth casinos.
Slot machine revenue was up in 9 of the 12 months during the most recent fiscal year totaling $2,378,859,341 or $26.5 million higher than the $2,352,320,937 generated during the 2017/2018 fiscal year. Tax revenue produced by slot machine play during the 2018/2019 fiscal year totaled $1,237,085,077*.
The Board noted that these figures reflect only 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 2019 and fiscal year 2018/2019 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 $27 billion resulting in tax generation of $14.5 billion.
