The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board said Monday that revenue from slot machines and tables games exceeded $3.2 billion in the 12 months ending June 30.

That was $86 million above the previous record high, in the 2012-13 fiscal year, and $112 million above last fiscal year.

Slots revenue of nearly $2.4 billion was up 2.3 percent for the year. Table games revenue of $839 million was up nearly 8 percent.

The news at Harrah’s in Chester was not quite as rosy. Table games revenue at Harrah’s in June dipped 2.31 percent form the same month in 1015, from $5,266 to $5,145,051.

Seven casinos saw increases in both categories. Only Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in suburban Harrisburg saw declines in both categories.

The gambling board estimates that combined tax revenue for the year was $1.4 billion, also a record high.
