The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has ordered the authorities to give refund to the casinos. It was the money paid by the most successful venues to a special fund created to aid gambling venues underperforming financially. According to Act 42, Pennsylvania casinos have to pay a percentage of its gross terminal revenue from its slot machines. The scheme would remain until all casinos exceeded annual targeted slot machine revenue caps. Those were set at US$200 million for the largest operations and US$50 million for smaller ones. According to Chief Justice Thomas G. Saylor, the funding formula would have only seven casinos eligible for allotments based on their 2017–18 financial performance.
