It doesn't seem like anything can slow down the iGaming market in Pennsylvania. 

PA online casinos set a new record in August, bringing in an impressive $55.9 million in revenue for the month. This is about $1.5 million more than revenue from July and the most money the state has seen generated from online casinos.  

Online slots contributed almost $40 million to the grand total, while table games brought in just about $13.6 million. The remainder, about $2.7 million, was generated by online poker. 

The new record comes one year after the first online casino launched in PA. Back in August 2019, online casinos had only made a few million in revenue.

There are a few operators that generated the majority of revenue for Pennsylvania in August. 

Rivers Philadelphia, the operator behind SugarHouse and BetRivers, brought in a total of $17.1 million. This is $8 million more than the second operator, Valley Forge generated in revenue.
