Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board Sees 7.28% Increase in Revenue for October

Ever since the first online gambling sites launched in Pennsylvania back in 2019 there has been a steady increase in revenue month on month. In fact, within the first month which was already two weeks in, three online casinos generated $813,306 in revenue. While this was a paltry amount compared to the months that followed, it still showed huge earning potential which has been substantiated.

During the month of October 2023, online casinos in the state generated $154,818,943 of which $66,484,708 was tax revenue. This was a 24.34% increase over October 2022’s earnings of $124,507,915.

The generated revenue can be broken down as follows:

  • Online Slots Revenue - $109,835,907
  • Online Tables Revenue - $42,637,039
  • Online Poker Revenue - $2,345,997

Slots are still the primary driver of revenue, with October resulting in a lifetime online slot revenue of more than $4 billion for the state.

When compared to retail casino revenue which totaled $273,978,222 for October, it’s easy to see that Pennsylvania online casino revenue still has a way to go before it catches up, but it likely won’t be too much longer before it does.
