Written By Corey Sharp on June 18, 2024
High-speed train representing Pennsylvania's online casinos sector continuing to cruise along. Pennsylvania operators had revenue of $216.5 million in May. It was the second-best month in state history.

Pennsylvania online casinos keep pumping out revenue totals of more than $200 million. Operators did so again for the fourth straight month, as the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board reported $216.5 million in May.

PA online casino revenue set a lofty record of $233.1 million in March. After a decrease in April, which was to be expected, platforms experienced a 2% month-over-month increase. It is also proves that operators have come a long way from last May after a 27% year-over-year increase.

Pennsylvania remains the top online casino market in the country. It is the only state to cross the $200 million threshold in May.

PlayPennsylvania Managing Editor Dave Briggs said:

“That’s now four straight months over $200 million, nine straight over $186 million and May also saw online casino revenue in Pennsylvania top $1 billion in just 2024 alone. And, how about this for milestones: Lifetime online slot revenue topped $5 billion in May.

“The online casino bullet train keeps on rolling in Pennsylvania.”
