Table games revenue up nearly 9 percent in April
Table games revenue generated at casinos in the commonwealth rose about 8.9 percent in April to nearly $61.6 million and brought in almost $8.9 million in tax money, according to a news release from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
However, overall gross revenue from table games and slot machines fell nearly $4 million in the month to about $266.7 million, the release stated. Including April, slots revenue has fallen for five consecutive months.
