Revenue generated through the play of slot machines at Pennsylvania casinos during November 2011 increased nearly 6.5% compared to the amount generated in November of last year.
According to the monthly report posted today on the web site of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, this November's gross revenue at the 10 operating casinos from slot machine play was $191,852,271 compared to gross revenue of $180,206,835 in November 2010.
