Slot machine revenue at state's casinos down in July
Gross revenue from slot machines at the state's 12 operating casinos in July was down 3.7 percent from the same month in 2012, according to figures released Friday by the state Gaming Control Board.
The decrease was even higher — 4.8 percent — if the revenue from only the 11 casinos in operation in 2012 was counted. The 12th gaming facility, Lady Luck Casino at Nemacolin Woodlands in Fayette County, opened last month.
Gross slots revenue at Rivers Casino on the North Shore, which was up 2.53 percent, was an exception to the overall trend, gaming figures show. Slots revenue at The Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington County was down 12.35 percent.
