Pennsylvania slot-machine revenue fell 2.8 percent to $200.4 million in April, according to a statement by the state gambling regulator.
Slot revenue at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem dropped 4.1 percent from the year-ago month to $25 million, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said. The total was the second-highest among the state’s 12 casinos, with Parx Casino in Philadelphia bringing in $35 million.
The board didn’t give any reason for the declines. Slot machines brought in $104.3 million in tax revenue, the statement said.
The Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem is owned by Las Vegas Sands Corp., which has agreed to sell the local casino to Wind Creek Hospitality, an Alabama company that is controlled by an Indian tribe.
