Valley Forge Casino Resort’s revenue growth has topped the region and the state for the first time, writes Kenneth Hilario for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
According to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, the state’s 12 casinos reported a total of more than $71.3 million in gross table revenue last month. That results in tax revenue of close to $10.2 million, a 6.9 percent increase from last year.
All four casinos located in the Philadelphia region – Parx, SugarHouse, Harrah’s Chester, and Valley Forge Casino Resort – saw increases in revenue compared to the same month last year.
“We had an increase in entertainment and the launch of several new amenities,” said Jennifer Galle, Chief Marketing Officer.
She credits many non-gaming features for the revenue growth, including the Memorial Day weekend summer preview of its Valley Beach Poolside Club, a Chris Daughtry concert, and a strong Mother’s Day performance.
“Table-game players seek out and respond well to experiential offerings like these,” she added. “We are excited to lead the state for the first time this year.”
