Revenue from table games was up sharply in May at the state’s 11 casinos. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board reports that revenue of $62.76 million was 13.6 percent higher than May 2012. There were 1,042 table games in May 2013 and 1,031 in May 2012.

The highest gross revenue was at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem, which took in $13.81 million on its 183 table games as compared to $10.85 million on its 152 table games in May 2012.

Coupled with figures on slot machine revenue reported earlier this month, the overall gross revenue from both slots and tables during May was up $6.3 million, or 2.4 percent, over May 2012. Total gaming revenue this May was $274 million compared to $267.68 million.

Tax revenue generated by table games exceeded $9 million during May. Of that amount, $7.75 million was deposited into the Pennsylvania General fund while $1.26 million was deposited into the Local Share Fund.
