Pennsylvania cements status as No. 2 gambling market in US

Pennsylvania has cemented its status as the nation's second-largest gambling market behind Las Vegas.

The state's gaming control board announced Tuesday that Pennsylvania's eleven casinos pulled in more than $233.1 million in gross slot machine revenue last month, setting an all-time monthly high for the state.

Atlantic City was the previous second-largest gambling market.

The totals include revenue from two test nights and one day of operations at Valley Forge Casino Resort, which opened Saturday. Overall, the figures broke the previous monthly record of $218.3 million set in July.

The gaming board says that for the first two months of 2012, Pennsylvania casinos tallied $515.7 million in gross revenue with slots and tables combined. New Jersey reported comparable gross revenue of $479.6 million.
