HARRAH’S PHILLY THINS OUT SLOTS — MORE ROOM TO BREATHE!

By Ben Sullivan

Harrah’s Philadelphia has gotten state approval to reduce the number of slot machines because of “a significant oversupply and underutilization” of the existing terminals.

With PGCB approval, the slot count at Harrah’s was reduced from 2,263 positions to 1,700.

Corporate owner Caesars says with fewer slot machines, its gaming floor is more comfortable for guests. Harrah’s added that it does not expect any revenue loss from the reduction. The state collects 54 percent of each casino’s slot win.

The casino removed the oldest and least profitable terminals. The average age of its slot machines is 10.3 years, Caesars explained.

Of the 563 slots removed, 338 were from the smoking section. The smoking section still has the majority of the property’s slots. This is nearly 52 percent of the 1,700 allotments.
