The state experienced a slight decline in activity when compared to February.

The state of Virginia has released its casino revenue results for the month of March. During the month, its two casinos brought in a total of $37.4m in adjusted gaming revenue, according to figures posted by the Virginia Lottery.  

In a breakdown by location, heavy hitter Rivers Casino Portsmouth contributed another full month of earnings to the state’s total. The state’s newest gaming facility and first full-service casino chipped in $23.6m to the combined total during March.

Bristol Casino – Future Home of Hard Rock, added its $13.8m revenue to the state’s casino gaming revenue total for March. The temporary casino first opened its doors last summer.

Slot revenue for the month of March made up $27.8m of the overall total. Virginia’s dynamic duo contributed more than $9.5m in table games revenue during the month.

Last month, Virginia’s casinos paid out more than $6.7m in taxes to the state. Tax dollars contributed included specific distributions to the Problem Gambling Treatment and Support Fund, the Family and Children’s Trust Fund, as well as to the host city.

The Virginia Lottery oversees sports betting and other wagering outlets throughout the state. It recently reached a milestone by becoming the first US lottery to operate its iLottery via a cloud-based program. NeoPollard Interactive (NPi) released an official statement that recognized the state lottery for its achievement.

The Virginia Lottery has been powered by NPi since 2016, when the group first launched its eSubscriptions. Part of the lottery’s recent cloud implementation included NPi’s central gaming system (CGS) for draw games, NeoDraw and Neoplay, an eInstants remote gaming server (RGS).
