West Virginia sees table game revenues decline

Dec 30, 2013 8:01 PM

At one time, the addition of table games to West Virginia casinos was considered the vehicle needed to enhance gaming growth. Not any more.

West Virginia officials have reported that a major decline in table game revenue from all four casinos in the state has resulted in a major drop in taxes received by the various communities.

In Wheeling, revenues dropped from $462,758 to $372,436 for the period that ended on November 30.

Wheeling receives table game revenue from all four casinos, including the Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack.

Wheeling officials say they are adjusting by keeping expenses at a low level.
