Plainridge Park Casino Revenue Up 12% in January
PLAINVILLE — Gambling revenue at Plainridge Park Casino increased by $1.3 million in January, snapping five straight months of revenue declines after a strong start last spring. The slots parlor brought in $12.5 million last month, the highest monthly total since October’s $12.9 million, according to the state Gaming Commission.
Plainridge is still unlikely to reach the $300 million it projected for its first year. It has collected $94.4 million in revenue in its first seven months, putting it on pace for $162 million for the year. However, historically, casino business tends to pick up in the spring, and casino officials hope the January boost continues in the coming months.
