According to a recent report, the Bristol Casino, which will become the future home of Hard Rock, has raked in over $215 million in adjusted gaming income in the month of October. This impressive figure comes just 16 months after the casino officially opened its doors.
The temporary establishment in Bristol, Virginia, revealed that it generated nearly $12.7 million in adjusted gaming income last month, almost matching its September total of $12.71 million, according to the latest Virginia Lottery report. The bulk of this income, $10.32 million, came from the 897 slot machines, accounting for nearly 81% of the total revenue for the month. While slot machine revenue dipped slightly, income from the 29 table games increased to $2.35 million, a $2.03 million jump from the previous month.
Overall, in the first 16 months since its opening, the casino has amassed more than $215.4 million in adjusted gaming income, with $176 million coming from slot machines and nearly $39 million from table games.
In addition to the Bristol Casino, two other casinos in Virginia, Rivers Casino Portsmouth and the Caesars interim establishment in Danville, also saw substantial adjusted gaming income in October. All three casinos combined for over $49.5 million, with $12.4 million coming from table games and $37.2 million from slots.
Rivers Casino Portsmouth revealed that it brought in $20.03 million in October, with $14.3 million from slots and $5.7 million from table games. The interim Caesars Virginia establishment in Danville reported an October income of $16.84 million, with $4.25 million from table games and $12.6 million from slot machines.
In terms of gaming tax income, the three casinos collected a total of $9.11 million in October, contributing to approximately $6 million in tax revenue for the state of Virginia.
Looking ahead, the Bristol Casino is set to open as the future home of Hard Rock in July of next year, while the Rivers Casino Portsmouth is already open to the public, and the Caesars Virginia casino is expected to open in late 2024.
