    Slot revenues fall in September at Parx and Harrah’s casinos

    Pennsylvania regulators told the Philadelphia Business Journal that slot revenues were off last month at two casinos in the Philadelphia-area.

    Harrah’s Chester Casino and Racetrack and Parx Casino in Bensalem both witnessed the drop in slot revenue. Harrah’s dropped by 9.2 percent to $21.1 million and Parx dropped less than a percentage point to $31.1 million, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said.

    Overall, slots revenue totaled $200.1 million, with $108.7 million in tax revenue earmarked for the state. SugarHouse opened in September of last year and won’t have comparable numbers until the end of October.
