Home » Pennsylvania reports marginal 1% rise in July gaming revenue

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has released its financial report for July 2022, which shows a marginal increase in revenue of slightly more than 1%.
For July 2022, total revenue from all types of gaming, including fantasy contests, was $429.1 million.
The PGCB regulates gaming revenue sources such as slot machines, table games, internet gaming, sports wagering, fantasy contests, and video gaming terminals (VGTs).

Despite being the highest-generating revenue source, retail slot machine revenue fell 4% year on year to $213.9 million.

The drop in slot machine revenue may be due in part to a slight decrease in the number of machines in operation, which fell from 25,710 to 25,684.

Sports wagering revenue reached $25.4 million, representing a 28% increase.

Another area that performed well was iGaming slot revenue, which increased by 14% to $72 million.

Despite a 12% annual decline, Parx Casino generated the most revenue in the state, totaling $56.4 million.

Parx also had the highest revenue from slot machines, totaling $33.7 million, a 13% decrease.

Wind Creek Bethlehem performed well, reporting revenue of $50.1 million, representing a 14% increase.

Table games revenue for the month was $86.7 million, a 0.3% decrease.

Wind Creek Bethlehem reported the highest revenue generation from table games, totaling $23.7 million, a 42% increase.

Total tax revenue from all forms of gaming and fantasy contests totaled $177.1 million in July, up from $161.2 million in June.

The PGCB recently announced a round of regulatory action, which included a fine and two exclusions.
