Pennsylvania casino revenue up a bit, thanks to table games
Sands Casino in Bethlehem one of state's biggest revenue producers
Total gambling revenue at Pennsylvania's casinos in October was up slightly over the same month last year, with most of the increase coming from play at table games, state regulators said Monday.
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said revenue from table games grew 10 percent in October. Not including the state's newest casino, Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin, revenue from table games grew nine percent at the 10 casinos that were open a year ago.
Overall, revenue rose to $249.5 million from $243.7 million, a two percent increase. Not counting Lady Luck, revenue rose one percent.
October's biggest revenue producers were Parx Casino in suburban Philadelphia and Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem.
