This month saw another large amount of wagers placed at the casino slots machines in Pennsylvania. For example, gamblers wagered at least $34 million just on slot machines two weeks ago, and this was just done at the Presque Isle Downs Casino. However, the casinos in Pennsylvania are quite generous and at least $30 million of this was won back to players. In the end, the casino got to keep at least $1.3 million of this as revenue.
However, during last week the amount of money wagered only decreased to $33 million. Gamblers bet at least $36 million on slots games during the first week of May. This was followed by another $35 million during the second week. This casino continues to see record wagers from its players.
The record for this casino is $57 million that was wagered in a single week during July 2010. This beats the previous record of $50 million in a week on slots games done in July 2008. This Erie Casino is well known for its innovative ideas. It was one of the first casinos to install a drive through allowing people to place bets on the Kentucky Derby.
