Elsewhere, Pennsylvania sports betting handle for the month was $31.5m; this figure was $500,000 down on January’s total, while revenue fell 27% from January’s $2.6m.
Rivers Casino accepted the highest handle ($8.1m) and generated the highest revenue ($627,000), resulting in $226,000 in tax.
SugarHouse Casino generated $522,000 in revenue from $7.1m in handle, although Parx Casino made $370,000 from a similar handle of $7m.
Harrah’s Philadelphia generated $137,000 from $2.9m in handle, while South Philadelphia Race and Sportsbook made $276,000 from $2.6m in accepted bets.
However, Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course took $3.7m in handle and generated just $14,000 in revenue.
Sports wagering is still relatively new to the market in Pennsylvania but February’s figures are already highlighting the impact of the state’s 36% tax rate.
