July was a good month for table games at the Pennsylvania's 12 casinos, especially for the Sands Casino Resort-Bethlehem, which had the highest revenue of the group.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said table game revenue for the month was $59.9 million in July. That was a 6.1 percent increase over July 2012.

The Sands brought in the most revenue with $12.95 million from table games in July, up from $12.49 million in July 2012. The casino also increased the number of table games from 152 to 183 during that time.

The Bethlehem casino has the highest number of table games. Next highest is Parx Casino in Philadelphia, which has 166 – which is down from 182 table games in July 2012.

Mount Airy Casino Resort in Mount Pocono saw a slight increase with the addition of one table game.

Now at 73 table games, Mount Airy took in $3.83 million in July 2013, compared to $3.56 million in July 2012.

While table games were up, overall gross revenue for table games and slots combined was down slightly last month.

The state's casinos took in $263.86 million in July, down 1.7 percent from the $269.35 in revenue from July 2012.
