HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Regulators say bad winter weather once again kept gamblers away from Pennsylvania casinos.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said Wednesday that revenue from slot machines in February totaled $181 million, down more than 7.5 percent.

Ten of the 11 casinos that were open in February 2013 posted year-over-year losses.

Regulators say heavy snow and frigid temperatures likely depressed turnout.

Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course posted the biggest loss last month, down more than 15 percent. Valley Forge Casino resort was up nearly 12 percent.
