Pennsylvania gambling revenue in March has surpassed $500 million for the first time in history. This is the highest gambling revenue recorded out of all legal states, surpassing New Jersey casinos

What’s more, Pennsylvania online casino revenue has also reached new, record-breaking heights of $181 million in March. 

  • Total gambling revenue in March over $500 million
  • Online casino revenue crosses $181 million
  • Online slots bring in $138 million, representing 76% of total iGaming revenue

Breakdown of The Numbers for Online Casinos

It’s hard to say this will be the last record-breaking month for PA casinos, as numbers have been on a steady rise since the start of this year and beyond. Nonetheless, this revenue rise is impressive, and quite the jump from previous months.

October 151.7$ million
November $155.9 million
December $166.9 million
January $160.3 million
February $162.3 million
March $181.2 million

Revenue by Game Type

As usual, online slots dominate the charts, since they’re the most beloved game type, and they’re available in highest numbers. 

Game TypeiGaming Revenue (March 2023)
Online Slots$138.2 million
Table Games$40.5 million
Online Poker$2.9 million

These numbers are certainly aided by the fact that PA online casino goers can enjoy popular and high-paying titles such as Bonanza Megaways, Starburst, 88 Fortunes, and many others. Mind you, we don’t have a breakdown of revenue per slot (although it would be nice!), but these are undoubtedly some of the most popular titles on the market. 

Who Are The Breadwinners in the PA Online Casino Market? 

Pennsylvania online casinos are dominated by three licensees: Hollywood Penn National, Rivers Philadelphia, and Valley Forge. The rest of the list is composed of licensees like Harrah’s and Parx, but even combined, they don’t make enough as even one of the “big three”.

You can make sense of my words by looking at the breakdown yourself:
