A chart with an arrow going up

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) released its July revenue reports for both slots and table games at the state’s 12 casinos this week, which saw operators bank a total of $286,980,398 for the month, an increase of over $28 million over June. Slot machines accounted for $209,124,965 of the figure, while table games contributed $77,855,433. The total take represents an increase of 4% compared with the same time period in 2016.

Parx dominates slots, Sands, table games

Parx Casino was the biggest winner of the month, raking in almost $50 million, while Sands took second place with a total of $47 million. Rivers Casino was a distant third at almost $30 million, with the Meadows shoring up the fourth-place spot at $23.2 million.

While Parx topped the list in terms of slots, it was eclipsed by over $5 million in table game revenue by Sands, which took in over $20 million total. The remaining 10 operators came nowhere close in terms of table games, with Rivers banking just $5.6 million in the third-place spot.

Slot earnings were more evenly distributed, with top earner Parx boasting $34.4 million, Sands taking $26.4 million and Rivers booking a $24.3 million win. Mount Airy saw the biggest bump in month over month slot revenue, banking 21% more than it did in June.

Lady Luck Casino found itself at the bottom of the list in terms of both slots and table games, earning just $2.8 million and $487,013 respectively. Its table game win, however, reflected a 65% increase from the previous month.

A welcome boost

All 12 casinos made month over month slot gains, although year-over year trends are still concerning. Keystone State slot revenues in July of last year were $213,423,773.92.

Most of the casinos also increased their table game revenue over June numbers, with all but Hollywood, SugarHouse, Presque Isle Downs and Valley Forge enjoying a better month. And unlike the trend in slot revenue, table games have shown consistent year-over-year improvement in 2017, peaking at an all time high in April.

July’s $28.5 million jump in overall revenue, compared with the previous month, is a welcome signal for the start of the PGCB fiscal year.
