Pennsylvania Casino Revenue Was Up in 2015, Regulators Say

Pennsylvania's casinos are reporting record revenue in 2015, after two down years.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said Friday that the state's 12 casinos brought in $3.17 billion in gross revenue. It's a 3 percent increase over 2014 and $15 million above the 2012 record.

Most of the big gainers are in eastern Pennsylvania.

The revenue growth is in line with the region and the nation. Joe Weinert of New Jersey-based Spectrum Gaming Group says there was modest growth in both during the 12 months through October as states keep licensing more casinos.

A license awarded in 2014 to a casino project in Philadelphia's stadium district is being challenged in court and a prospective racetrack project in western Pennsylvania is trying to win a 14th license.
