State's casinos raked in more winnings

ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — Mississippi’s state-licensed casinos won $189.8 million from players in January, down only $3 million from January 2010.

The figures were reported Friday by the Mississippi Department of Revenue.

“Win” is a gross figure, with no operating costs or other expenses deducted. It is casino revenue only and doesn’t include hotel, restaurant or bar revenues generated by the resorts.

The 11 coastal Mississippi casinos won $97.8 million in January, up from $90.4 million in January 2010.

For the 19 casinos on the Mississippi River that stretch from Natchez to Tunica, revenue was $92 million in January, down about $10.3 million from a year ago.
