September table games revenue up 15 percent in Pa.

PHILADELPHIA -- Pennsylvania gambling regulators say gross revenue from table games was up 15.4 percent last month compared to the same period a year ago.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board reported Monday that the state's 11 casinos generated $59.3 million in gross revenue from table games last month. That's up from $51.4 million in September 2011.

This year's numbers include $2.9 million generated at Valley Forge Casino Resort, which opened in March. When comparing only casinos open during both periods, gross table games revenue was up a little less than 10 percent last month.

The state legalized casino gambling in 2004 and saw its first casino open in 2006. The state legalized table games in 2010 and they are now up and running at each of the casinos.
