The Sands took in $12.6 million in gross table game revenue in February, up from $12 million the year prior. The casino added 17 table games between this February and last, contributing to the increase.

Mount Airy Casino Resort in Mount Pocono took in $3.4 million in table game revenue in February, as compared to $3 million in 2013. The casino added three table games over the last year.

While table game revenue was up overall, the gaming commission reported that slot revenue was down 7.5 percent. That left overall revenue down 5 percent to $238.3 million for February 2014 as compared to $252.3 million in February 2013.

A total of $8.3 million in tax revenue was generated from table games in February.
