Mississippi casino revenues rise in December and all of 2016
JACKSON, MS (AP) - Mississippi casinos ended 2016 on a high note, with revenue rising in both December and the year.
State Revenue Department figures show gamblers lost $171 million in December, up 2 percent from $167 million in the same month in 2015.
Revenue rose 1 percent in 2016 to $2.12 billion. That's the second yearly increase after seven declines, but statewide collections remain far below their 2007 peak of $2.89 billion.
