Monthly Pennsylvania Gaming Revenue Tops $400 Million for Second Straight Month

Monthly Pennsylvania Gaming Revenue Tops $400 Million for Second Straight Month

HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board posted reports that the combined total revenue in April 2021 generated from all forms of gaming regulated by the Board along with fantasy contests was $404,105,692, eclipsing the record for total revenue achieved in the previous month of March.

In releasing and historically comparing the April figures, the Board again noted that due to Covid-19 restrictions, all casinos were closed during the entirety of April 2020, so no revenue was generated by slot machines, table games or retail sportsbooks. Video Gaming Terminals (VGTs) were also not in operation last April. Therefore, in order to provide a fairer comparison of this month’s revenue figures of those type of gaming, the Board is providing where appropriate in this release a comparison of this year’s revenue against that of April 2019 when COVID restrictions were not in place. Using that comparison, this month’s total revenue was 42% above that of April 2019 when the total revenue was $283,881,862.

Sources of gaming revenue regulated by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board include slot machines, table games, internet gaming, sports wagering, fantasy contests and VGTs. The Board has posted separate reports for these types of gaming on its website, https://gamingcontrolboard.pa.gov/.
