Slots revenue at Lady Luck Casino at Nemacolin for September was almost $1.97 million, down slightly from the previous month, according to the Pennsylvania Gaming Commission.

The commission released the figures Wednesday.

The casino posted gross revenues of $2 million in August and $2.4 million in July. The $60 million casino opened July 1 at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Spa.

Statewide, slots revenue are down 6.3 percent from the same time last year, according to the commission.

Gross September revenues from Pennsylvania's 12 casinos was $205 million, generating $110 million in tax revenues.

Lady Luck last month said it laid off 15 percent of its workforce because of lower than anticipated business as it moves into the slower winter season.

Nemacolin Woodlands Resort holds a Category 3 resort gaming license, meaning patrons at Lady Luck are required to spend at least $10 on resort amenities before they are allowed into the casino, per state law governing its special license.
