PA Revenue Dept: VGT’s Only Net $47.8M
VGT’s can only net the Commonwealth $47.8M.
That is according to Pennsylvania’s own Department of Revenue.
After 6 years of full VGT implementation, their study shows VGT’s will only net $47.8M.

This comes at the cost of cannibalizing hundreds of millions from the PA Lottery and Casino Industry.
Taking into account the true devastation wrought by the Illinois VGT’s implementation, the numbers are even worse.
VGT’s are bad public policy. And, voters know it.
Over 2/3’s of Pennsylvania voters oppose legalizing VGT’s.
In fact, voters are 4 times more likely to vote against legislators who legalize VGT’s.
VGT’s rob seniors of their lottery benefits and crush the 18,000 people Pennsylvania’s casinos put to work.
All for $47.8M? You’ve got to be kidding.
