The spokesman of the gaming board, Richard McGravey, stated that the total gaming revenue went up 3.9% y-o-y and highlighted that April was the 8th consecutive month in which an increase has happened. According to his statement, the last drop in total gaming revenue in Pennsylvania was back in August, 2015. The state scooped $121.9 million in taxes in April thanks to the casinos’ excellent performance.
Earlier, the board also published a report on slot machine revenue, which was higher for 3.9% in comparison to last April. The results combined reveal that Parx Casino is the leader when it comes to total gaming revenue with its profit of $48.5 million.
