Plainridge Park Performance Continues to Improve
PLAINVILLE — Gambling revenue at Plainridge Park Casino jumped in February, the second consecutive monthly increase, the Boston Globe reported yesterday.
The slot parlor brought in $12.6 million last month, about $100,000 more than in January. On a daily basis, revenue rose nearly 8%, according to figures from the state Gaming Commission. Over the past two months, the casino’s revenue averaged $12.5 million, up from $11.5 million in November and December. A 12% increase in January followed five months of declining numbers since a strong opening early last summer.
Plainridge was expected to collect as much as $300 million in revenues in its opening year, but has fallen short of those projections, and is on pace to take in about $160 million for the year.
