Pennsylvania’s gaming industry saw nearly $311 million in revenue in August, exceeding last year’s pre-pandemic total, regulators said Wednesday.

Pennsylvanians spent $310,717 on gaming and fantasy sports contests in August, an increase of 6 percent from the August 2019 tally of $293,434, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said in a statement. That total came from a blend of slot machines, table games, internet gaming, retail and internet sports wagering, fantasy contests and video gaming terminals revenues, the regulatory agency said.

The total tax revenue from those sources was $128.8 million in August, the gaming board said in its statement. Below, a chart of revenues, by casino and fantasy sports, according to the Gaming Control Board:
