Top Pennsylvania Casinos by Slot Machine Play

The July report on Pennsylvania slot machine activity was released last week by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and its a bit of a letdown after the optimism from June.

After a record June and an excellent report from the 2017-2018 fiscal year, July was a slight disappointment. Slot revenue again eclipsed $200 million for June, but was down 2.62% from the same time last June. Despite the down month, revenue compared to June was up 2.89%.
