In comparison, revenue for July of last year came in at $283.1 million. The previous revenue record was in May of this year at $413.2 million.
Year-on-year numbers show that Pennsylvania’s gambling revenue increased 49.7% to a record-breaking $423.7 million.
While much of this growth can partially be attributed to the reopening of land-based casinos and easing of restrictions from the ongoing pandemic, Pennsylvania’s iGaming revenue also saw incredible growth.
Online gambling revenue rose 63.1% to $88.7 million compared to $54.4 million in July 2020.
The most significant sector of PA’s iGaming market was, once again, online slots pulling in $63.2 million. Table games brought in $22.9 million, and online poker was at $2.6 million. Poker was the only platform that saw a downward trend in revenue on year-on-year revenue, down 13.8%.
For July, Pennsylvania’s top online casino was Hollywood Casino with $32.1 million in revenue, followed by Rush Street (parent company of SugarHouse and BetRivers) at $25.8 million, and FanDuel with $14.2 million.
Altogether, Pennsylvania’s iGaming sector brought in a combined total of $508.1 million in state and local taxes this year thus far. These funds are used towards education programs and responsible gambling programs around the state.
