The biggest iGaming market in the country isn’t letting up.

Pennsylvania online casinos amassed $216,491,295 in May win, marking the second-highest total in state history and continuing an unprecedented streak of $200 million-months.

Key takeaways

  • Online casino revenue surpassed $200 million for the fifth time in the past six months
  • Revenue was up 27.1% compared to May 2023
  • May’s $216.5 million in revenue was the second-highest in state history

Monthly and annual revenue rise recorded on strong May numbers

Online casinos saw a 2% increase over PA’s April 2024 gaming revenue and a staggering 27.1% increase over May 2023. While the monthly increase was pedestrian, the yearly jump of more than 25% points to the considerable growth of Pennsylvania online casinos.

For example, online casino win surpassed $180 million once from July 2019 (when online casinos launched in Pennsylvania) through May 2023. However, from June 2023 to May 2024, win cleared the threshold of $180 million eight times.

Over the past six months, win has passed $200 million five times:

  1. May 2024: $216,491,295
  2. April 2024: $212,212,613
  3. March 2024: $233,087,604
  4. February 2024: $215,288,753
  5. January 2024: $189,302,559
  6. December 2023: $204,224,660

In a national context, Pennsylvania’s numbers are unmatched. Michigan and New Jersey, the two biggest markets in the country behind the Keystone State, have surpassed $200 million in revenue just twice through April 2024.

Slots continue to anchor revenue posting $169.3M in May

Online slots play accounted for $169.3 million of May’s online casino win, followed by table games at $44.9 million and online poker at $2.3 million, according to new data from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

Here’s a look at how online casino revenue worked out for the state’s 11 land-based casinos that participate in iGaming:

May 2024 revenue
Penn National$58,962,230
Valley Forge$41,365,910
Rivers Philadelphia$34,727,221
Caesars$8,296,494
Golden Nugget$5,278,732
Bally's$4,813,805
Parx$4,406,063
Live! Philadelphia$4,004,563
Mount Airy$3,129,559
Wind Creek$2,240,658
Mohegan$2,076,471

What’s ahead for PA online casinos?

Casino win tends to dip in the summer, leaving Pennsylvania online casinos with an interesting question heading into June, July, and August: Can the $200 million streak continue?

Using win growth rates from May 2023 to September 2023, we predict there’s a chance the figures could drop below $200 million in July:

MonthProjected Revenue
October 2024$237,527,711
September 2024$238,003,263
August 2024$218,461,249
July 2024$199,597,885
June 2024$208,768,016
May 2024$216,491,295
