Revenue from table games at Pennsylvania casinos continue to rise.

The state's 11 casinos generated nearly $61.6 million in April. That amount was $5.05 million, or 8.9 percent, more than casinos generated in April 2012. There are 1,041 table games at casinos around Pennsylvania.

Coupled with slots revenues, which have been down statewide for five consecutive months, Pennsylvania casinos generated $266.7 million in gross revenues for April. That figure stood at $270.6 million the same month last year.

The Meadows Racetrack & Casino in North Strabane, Washington County, generated nearly $4.4 million last month at its 80 table games. That was up from $2.7 million last April.

Rivers Casino on the North Shore, however, lost more than $1 million in April table-game revenue, dropping to just under $5 million last month.
