Gross revenue from gambling at table games in Pennsylvania casinos during February 2017 was down 2.8% compared to February of last year, according to figures released today by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

Posted on the Gaming Control Board website, the report shows that this February’s gross table games revenue was $66,302,623 compared to $68,187,957 in revenue produced by the 12 casinos during February 2016.

Have console, casual mobile games and online gambling replaced casinos? Will they have the same fate of the movie theaters?

Leap Year Cause for Loss?

The Board does note that the comparison month of February 2016 occurred in a leap year resulting in an extra day of gaming play last year.

Total tax revenue from table games play during February was $10,717,173* with an average of 1,229 tables in operation statewide on a daily basis.

Gross table games revenue for each of the casinos for February 2017 and February 2016 is as follows:
