Pennsylvania continues to emerge as a growing gambling market.

After posting a record high in monthly revenue for slot machines during March, the commonwealth's 11 casinos posted an all-time high for table games revenue last month, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said today.

With an average of 1,028 tables in operation, monthly gross revenue was nearly $61.9 million, up 13.3 percent from March 2011, the board said. There were 854 tables during the same month a year ago.

The previous high revenue month for table games was February, which totaled more than $56.5 million.

Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in East Hanover Township accounted for nearly $3.8 million in gross table games revenue, the board said. That was up from about $3.5 million in March 2011.

Since table games were added to Pennsylvania casinos in July 2010, total revenue is more than $1 billion, the board said. Tax revenue has totaled $161.4 million.

Slot machines totaled more than $233 million in March, the most since the opening of the commonwealth's first casino in November 2006.
