State’s casinos see worst revenue in April since 1998
Published: May 28,2013
Mississippi Department of Revenue figures show statewide casino revenue fell 6 percent to $176.3 million.
Year-over-year casino revenue has fallen in every month since July 2012. The state’s casinos, over the last 12 months, have collected only about 75 percent of the money they collected in 2007, the peak year for gambling revenues.
The 18 river casinos from Tunica to Natchez won $90.6 million, down 3 percent from the $93.7 million they won in April 2012. The 12 coastal casinos won $85.7 million from gamblers, down 8 percent from the $93.4 million they won in January 2012.
The numbers exclude Choctaw Indian casinos, which aren’t required to report winnings to the state.
