Pennsylvania breaks gaming revenue record for March

By Tim Poole

Total gaming revenue in the state of Pennsylvania for March reached a record $314.6m, including $5.5m in sports betting revenue.

The March Madness basketball tournament pushed sports wagering revenue up from $1.9m in February, with handle also rising from $31.5m for the month to $44.5m.

Rivers Casino generated the highest revenue total of $1.3m from $11.9m in handle, while SugarHouse Casino made $1.2m from $9.2m.

Parx Casino’s revenue was just short of $1m from a total handle of $7.9m.

Sports wagering figures also grew in New Jersey and Delaware for March, as the March Madness boosted handle and revenue for operators and suppliers across the board.

Elsewhere, gaming revenue from slot machines and table games reached an all-time record for March, totalling $309.1m.

This represented a 3% year-on-year increase and only the second month in which overall revenue surpassed $300m, the first being March 2018.
