Online casino revenue in PA continued a trend of double-digit percentage jumps month-over-month in February, according to the PGCB.
In February 2020, revenue from PA online casinos increased by a staggering 39.6% over January 2020, which was itself up 31.4% over December of 2019.
Gross revenue from online slots, table games, and poker in February reached nearly $19.5 million.
That came out to $6.8 million in tax revenue from online casino.
Table game revenue continues to gain ground on slots
Revenue broke down to over $9.6 million from online slots and more than $8 million from table games. Online poker, which has only one operator, brought in $1.8 million.
The total February revenue for the relatively new FanDuel was nearly $6.1 million. Table games accounted for more than $4.8 million. That’s unusual since online slots typically contribute to the bulk of revenue for online casinos.
For instance, PlaySugarHouse (Rivers Casino Philadelphia) was second in terms of revenue, with $4.8 million in February and slots accounted for more than $3.1 million of it.

FanDuel surges to No. 1, online poker stays strong
After getting off to a hot start in the final days of January, FanDuel followed up strong. It took the well-known Daily Fantasy Sports brand less than a month to surge into the top casino operator spot.
The FanDuel Sportsbook was already the leader in PA. With the two verticals in an integrated app, FanDuel’s dominance in sports betting is clearly helping casino business.
As more people turn to online gaming with PA land-based casinos closed for coronavirus containment, FanDuel and other operators will likely get an uptick in traffic.
Online poker has already seen it, and PokerStars PA will be running its biggest series yet, PASCOOP, in early April. The lone online poker operator in PA continues to post strong numbers, which are likely to increase in March and April.
