More than $54 million of that came from online gaming.

Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh generated nearly $17 million — that’s a 48% drop.

Presque Isle Downs and Casino in Erie also reported lower revenue. The casino saw a nearly 16% decrease compared to 2019.

July was the first month since March that all 12 of Pennsylvania’s casinos were open for all or most of the month.
