September was a good month for gaming, especially table games, at Pennsylvania’s casinos.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board reported a 10 percent increase in table game revenue over September 2016, and a nearly 4 percent overall revenue increase.

The state’s casinos took in $75.61 million in table game revenue last month as compared to $68.79 million in September last year.

The Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem fared even better, increasing its table game revenue nearly 17 percent to $22.69 million compared to $19.4 million in 2016.

In Mount Pocono, Mount Airy Casino Resort saw a slight increase, taking in $3.87 million as compared to $3.86 million in 2016.

When table games revenue is combined with the earlier reported September slot machine revenue, total gaming revenue was up more than $10 million, or 3.86 percent, compared to September last year.

Statewide total gaming revenue was $271 million in September compared to $260.9 million in September 2016.

Total gaming revenue for the Sands was $47.5 million in September 2017 compared to $44.17 million in September 2016 a 7.56 percent increase.
