Mississippi Casinos Cash In
Casino revenue continued to grow statewide in Mississippi in June. Gamblers lost more at casinos along the Mississippi River and the Gulf Coast.
Figures released this week by the State Revenue Department show casinos won $175 million in June, up 1.4 percent from $173 million in June 2015. Gamblers lost $96 million at the 12 coastal casinos, an increase of less than 1 percent from last June. It’s the tenth increase for coastal casinos in the last 12 months.
Revenue for the river casinos rose two percent from June 2015. It was only the sixth month in the last three years that revenue has increased at those casinos.
