Another record-breaking performance beat out November’s mark of $155.9 million and sets a new all-time record again for any online casino market in the US. This helped the state reach its best calendar year ever in terms of overall PA gaming revenue, hitting over $5.2 billion, up nearly $500 million from 2021.
