Yes, the first revenue estimates from the newly established PA slot machines have just been reported. The expected earning are way more than anyone would have guessed, being greater than the 5 year predictions. I hope with these numbers our property taxes do see a huge discount or disappear totally.

Over 3 billion dollars have been wagered in the only 4 slot casinos in the state thus far and the casinos profiting over $300 million and over $160 million of this going towards government needs mostly the property tax relief promised. They say though that there needs to be $570 million before we see this breaks and that will be next school year.
