HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Slot-machine revenue at Pennsylvania casinos fell 3.6 percent in April.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said Friday that Pennsylvania’s 12 casinos took in about $198 million from slots last month, down about $7 million from the year-ago period.

Including only the 11 casinos that were also open in April 2013, revenue fell 4.6 percent.

Slots revenue fell at 10 of the 11 casinos, with Hollywood Casino down the most at 10 percent. The only casino in positive territory was Valley Forge Casino Resort, up 20 percent.


The state’s April tax haul from slot machines was $106 million.
