“Since one of the intents of the Gaming Act was to provide a significant source of new revenue, it is certainly gratifying to see this continued increase,” said Chairman of the Board William H. Ryan, Jr. “The ability of Pennsylvania casinos to offer top-scale amenities and high quality service is certainly a driving factor in the patronage of these entertainment facilities.”
In December, the casinos that brought in the most revenue via table games in the state were the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem and Parx Casino, which both brought in over $10 million for the month from table games. With only 53 tables, Presque Isle Downs and Casino brought up the rear bringing in a little less than $2 million.
Pennsylvania taxes gross revenue from slots at approximately 55% and gross revenue from table games at 16%. In the month of December, table game play brought in $9,015,350 in tax revenue.
