Revenue from slots fell again in February, down 7.5 percent year over year from February 2013, according to new numbers released this week by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
Revenue also was down in January, by 8.7 percent, and the recent numbers are not good news for the proposed second Philadelphia casino, The Philadelphia Inquirer says.
In February, slots revenue at Mohegan Sun was down 0.5 percent; down 9.4 percent at Parx; down 11.6 percent at Harrah’s Philadelphia; down 7.8 percent at Presque Isle; down 6.3 percent at The Meadows; down 12.3 percent at Mount Airy; down 15.4 percent at Penn National; down 11.2 percent at Sands Bethlehem; down 5.3 percent at The Rivers; and down 9.5 percent at SugarHouse.
Revenue was up 11.8 percent at Valley Forge, the only Pennsylvania casino to see an increase in slots revenue.
Nemacolin, in Fayette County, only opened its casino in July 2013, so year-over-year comparisons aren’t available.
In February, $2,244,866,401.97 was wagered on Pennsylvania slot machines, the Gaming Control Board said.
