The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board posted on its web site today the monthly
report for total gross revenue and tax revenue generated from the play of slot
machines at casinos during January.
According to the report, gross revenue from slot machines at the 12 casinos fell
8.7% in January of this year to $171,786,456 compared to the $188,244,599 in
gross revenue generated in January 2013.

the significant amounts of snow and extreme cold weather that affected all parts
of Pennsylvania in January and has continued into February," says Gaming Control
Board Executive Director Kevin O'Toole.
Tax revenue in January of this year was $91,744,988.
