Valley Forge Casino Resort, the state’s newest casino, opened March 31 and was still able to generate $11.8 million in gross slots revenue and eight of the state’s 10 other casinos reported increases.

Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino & Racetrack and Presque Isle Downs Casino, which are both facing more competition due to location, were the only two casinos which did not see an increase in revenue.

“We are pleased with the annual slot machine revenue figures and optimistic about the future success of Pennsylvania casinos,” said gaming board Chairman William H. Ryan, Jr.. “At the same time, we are fully aware that bordering states will provide more competition for gaming entertainment dollars which can affect the level of growth we are seeing.”
