HARRISBURG - Three state casinos urged the State House Gaming Oversight Committee last week to approve a measure legalizing table games, such as poker, blackjack, roulette, and craps.

Executives from the 3 casinos spent two hours before the committee promoting the benefits the games would provide to the tsate. They said it would create 16,000 new jobs, increase revenues paid to the state, and provide capital to build hotels at the casinos. The overall impact would reduce the state's budget deficit and spur the state's economy.

The Pennsylvania Equine Coalition disputes these claims. They say table games would decrease slot revenues by 8 to 13 percent instead of increasing them by 3 percent as claimed by the 3 casino representatives. The coalition represents tracks which operate slot machines.
