Pennsylvania Casinos See 11% Revenue Bump in July

0

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.
