NEW YORK Jan 4 (Reuters) - Pennsylvania will have to furlough 1,000 state workers if the legislature does not legalize table games at casinos by the end of this week, the governor and his secretary of administration said on Monday.

The furloughs will be needed to help close a $250 million hole in the budget, Democratic Governor Ed Rendell said in a statement.

Pennsylvania currently allows only slot machines at its new casinos, which compete with New Jersey's Atlantic City's resorts that have offered table games for decades. (Reporting by Joan Gralla; Editing by Dan Grebler)
