Pennsylvania and Delaware online poker revenues drop in June

The record-setting online gambling revenues produced during the COVID-19 pandemic in Pennsylvania and Delaware sagged a bit in June.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board released the online gambling revenue report for June earlier this week. It showed a dip from the record-high numbers posted in May.

In May, Pennsylvania set a new record for online gambling revenue with $55.8 million. In June, as brick and mortar casinos in the state began to reopen, those numbers dropped 10 per cent to $50 million.

The state’s online poker revenues also took a hit in June. Legalized online poker in Pennsylvania remains a one-man shop, with Mount Airy casino’s online poker room still the only one that has launched so far. In May Pennsylvania reported just over $4.5 million in online poker revenues. In June those revenues dropped nearly 30 percent to $3.2 million.

It was a similar scene in Delaware, where the reopening of brick and mortar casinos also led to shrinking online gambling revenues. Since March, Delaware online gambling revenue has increased substantially with records being set across the board.

Delaware topped the $1 million mark in online gambling revenues in one month for the first time with $1.1 million. By comparison a few months earlier in February they reported $324,000 in revenue. They still topped that in June with $964,000, but they failed to hit the $1 million mark for consecutive months.

The online poker net revenue numbers in Delaware also took a hit in June following an unprecedented month in May. In May, Delaware reported just under $94,000 in online poker revenue. That was more than a 300 percent increased on revenues from May, 2019.

In June those revenues dropped by nearly 40 per cent, with $57,000 coming into Delaware online poker operators coffers. Operators can’t be too upset though, as those numbers are still up 141 per cent when compared to revenue numbers from June, 2019.
