Casino Revenue Down

The economic crisis is effecting everyone…..how long will it last is the question all are waiting for the answer.

November was the third straight month that revenues at the 11 Coast casinos fell below the 2007 levels.

Numbers just released by the Mississippi Tax Commission show the Coast casinos won $96 million this year compared to $103 million in November 2007.

The River casinos took a much bigger hit from the slow economy, down $12 million in November after falling $7 million in October.

Total earnings for the state were $205 million compared to $225 million in 2007.

I believe that I read that Louisana’s casinos had a 6% rise in profits for the same period.
