Pennsylvania’s legal online gambling market continued to grow in October. Save for a blip in June, when casinos reopened, this marks 15 months of almost uninterrupted growth for the Keystone State.
Pennsylvania online casinos brought in a combined $57.3 million in October, an increase of $2.6 million. PokerStars remains the only option for online poker in PA and added a little over $2.4 million, slightly up from September. Adding in $41.5 million from mobile sportsbooks and $3.2 million from fantasy sports brings the total for all online channels to $104.4 million, breaking into nine-figure territory for the first time.
Tax revenue from online casinos and poker amounted to $24.9 million. That’s only a slight increase, because most of the gains from the casino vertical came from table games, which are taxed at a lower rate than slots. By the same token, operators’ bottom lines benefited to a comparatively larger degree.
Data comes from the latest report published by the PA Gaming Control Board (PGCB).
