Pennsylvania Releases Table Game Revenue Figures For First Time

Feather News

Pennsylvania's state gaming regulatory body released their first table game report yesterday which shows revenue earned by the nine casinos in their first (partial) month of hosting table games.

The list below is in order of the casino with the highest table game revenues to the lowest. The number of table games at each casino are noted in parentheses after the casino's name. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs was at the bottom of the list, attributed to an "unlucky month" according to an official.

Note that these figures are before deducting the table game tax, which is 16 percent ($202,000 for Mohegan's Pocono Downs casino), and before deducting any casino expenses associated with operating the table games. In other words, these amounts are basically the amounts the customers lost to the casino playing table games.

The Rivers (85) 3,052,531
Parx (57) 2,328,599
Mount Airy (72) 2,028,827
Harrah's (99) 1,972,181
Meadows (62) 1,911,064
Penn National (50) 1,830,558
Sands Bethlehem (89) 1,655,357
Presque Isle (48) 1,499,569
Mohegan Sun (62) 1,260,653

Note: Mohegan Sun began its table games on July 13, 2010.
