Pa. table games receipts reverse direction

April gambling receipts from table games at Pennsylvania's 11 casinos fell a month after hitting a record high as competition grows in bordering states.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board reported Wednesday that gross revenue was $56.5 million. That was down from March's $61.9 million. It beat April 2011 receipts by 7 percent, but per table revenue fell 10 percent from the year-ago period.

Pennsylvania first licensed slot-machine casinos in 2006 before authorizing table games in 2010. Ohio's first casino opened Monday, and three more are planned this year. Two are open in Maryland, and a third opens in June.
