In terms of sports betting , SugarHouse brought in the most, bringing in just over $1 million.
SugarHouse made a total of almost $33 million during July, which was a big increase for them. Their slot taking fell, but their table games increasing and the sports betting being added to their total meant it was a total increase in revenue.
Despite being the current leader in sports betting for Pennsylvania, SugarHouse does have a contender to their crown. Valley Forge Casino was only open for three days during the month of July, but they still managed to bring in a third of what SugarHouse did over the whole month.
