Pennsylvania December 2016 Poker Revenue Amounts to $5.02 Million

According to state gaming statistics published by the regulatory authorities, the 225 poker tables in Pennsylvania generated $5.02 million in December 2016, resulting in a total annual revenue of $58.6 million from the gambling industry. This is a $1 million overall increase relative to poker earnings in 2015 when the December figure amounted to $4.93 million.

Pennsylvania’s cumulative casino revenue for 2016 reached $3.2 billion, which is an unprecedented high yet only 1.25% more than earnings for the previous year. The money flow was generated across the 12 casinos, 1,200 game tables and 26,000 slot machines available statewide.

2016 saw a certain lack of dynamics on the poker and casino gambling markets in the state, but a new online gambling bill in the pipeline gives hopes to legislators that the current results of the industry can be enhanced. The forecast is for online casinos to add a 10% boost to existing figures. With hindsight, a similar proposal was rejected by the local senate last year.
