March Mississippi casino revenue dips as coast gambling lags

Dipping Gulf Coast casino revenue dragged down Mississippi’s statewide gambling totals in March.

Figures released last week by the state Revenue Department show casinos won $188 million in March, down 5 percent from $198 million in March 2015.
Gamblers lost $103 million at the 12 coastal casinos, 4 percent less than last March. It’s only the third decline for coastal casinos in the last year.
