Pa Slot Revenue Continues Decline

01.08.15 |

Pennsylvania slot machine revenue has fallen for the second straight year. Gross revenue from the state's 12 casinos totaled $2.31 billion in 2014, down 2.71 percent from the year before. A Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board spokesman attributed the decline to competition from surrounding states, including Ohio, Maryland and New York. He also theorized that the economy was continuing to have an impact on the amount of disposable income available for entertainment like gambling.
