Mississippi casino revenue falls

Mississippi casino revenue fell in August, as continued strength on the Gulf Coast couldn’t overcome continuing losses at Mississippi River gambling halls.

Figures released by the state Revenue Department show casinos won $171 million from gamblers in August, down 1 percent from $172.7 million in August 2015.

Statewide gambling revenue is up less than 1 percent over the past year.
