Gross revenues of over $3.1 billion in 2012 solidified Pennsylvania's status as the second-largest U.S. gambling market. With significant portions of that revenue coming from within Bucks County and the Greater Philadelphia Region, there's no denying that the region has embraced local gaming opportunities. What was once reserved for a few holidays weekends down the shore has become accessible for a last minute night out down the street.
