The record revenues for the 2023 calendar year were revealed by the American Gaming Association (AGA). Philadelphia and the Poconos, two Pennsylvanian areas, are among the top 20 US commercial casino markets.

These marketplaces in the Keystone State are made up of strong companies that are regarded as some of the finest in the nation.

Pennsylvania is perhaps the most gambling-friendly state in the union, with sports betting, PA online casinos, and brick-and-mortar casinos available outside of Nevada.

The AGA Bestows Top Honors Onto the Casinos in Philadelphia and Pocono

Based on revenue, the AGA put the casinos in Philadelphia at seventh and Pocono at eleventh place out of 20 of the best markets in the country. There are five casinos in the Philadelphia metropolitan region. They include:

Given the size of Philadelphia, the number of casinos is hardly shocking. Nonetheless, it’s astounding to see how successful these institutions are in spite of the fact that many of them are just a short drive apart.

The AGA claims that in 2023, these establishments brought in $1.27 billion in income. It came in behind places like Yonkers (NY), Gulf Coast (MS), Baltimore/Washington DC (DC/MD/WV), Chicagoland (IL/IN), and Atlantic City (NJ).

Mohegan, Pennsylvania, and Mount Airy Casino make up the Poconos. Last year, these facilities brought in $934.7 million in income. The Poconos were placed lower than Detroit (MI), St. Louis (MO/IL), and Boulder Strip (NV).

Land-based facilities had an excellent year overall. A record $49.4 billion was made in 2023 from casino slots and table games, an increase of 3.3% over 2022.
