Revenue generated by people playing slot machines at Pennsylvania casinos dropped by about 2.5 percent in August, making it the ninth consecutive monthly decline, according to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
Slot machine revenue generated last month at 12 operating casinos was about $205.4 million, down from about $210.6 million in August 2012, when there were 11 casinos open in the commonwealth, according to a news release.
Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Dauphin County declined about 2.6 percent to about $19.7 million.
Several of the other nine gaming facilities opened prior to 2012 had larger percentage drops.
The only one of these that went up was the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem in Northampton County, with about a 2.1 percent increase to about $25.4 million, the release stated.
The last time overall gross slots revenue went up in Pennsylvania was November 2012, according to board figures.
