Mixed Results for Pennsylvania Casinos in 2013

Pennsylvania’s casinos saw a six percent bump in table game revenue during 2013, but overall gambling revenue for the state was down, compared to 2012, officials report.

Pennsylvania’s gambling market is the nation’s second largest, after Las Vegas, having passed New Jersey for the runner-up spot a year ago.

State regulators released year-end revenue numbers for table games Thursday. They show that Pennsylvania’s 12 casinos took in about $730 million from table games last year, a 6 percent increase over 2012.

That wasn’t enough to prevent the state’s gambling industry from suffering its first overall revenue decline since casino play began in 2006. Thanks to a decline in slot-machine play, gross casino revenue in 2013 dipped about 1.4 percent to $3.1 billion. The year-end slots numbers were released in early January.
