HARRAH’S NEW ORLEANS CASINO
Mixed revenue news for MS, LA casinos
By David Grisham
MISSISSIPPI/LOUISIANA — Statewide revenue totals were down slightly in August of this year compared to August of last year for Mississippi casinos as a decrease at river casinos offset a slight increase at coastal properties. Revenue was up in August year over year at Louisiana’s land-based casino, Harrah’s New Orleans, offsetting a decrease at other Louisiana casinos, which saw revenue dip in all regions except Baton Rouge.
Revenue also dropped in August compared to July in all regions of Louisiana and Mississippi as vacation season neared an end. Historically, August casino revenue is almost always lower than July’s.
Mississippi casinos took in $167,932,349 in August, down 1.8 percent from the $170,970,349 collected in August of last year. Statewide revenue in August was 10.6 percent lower than the July revenue figure of $187,873,706.
Mississippi Gulf Coast casinos saw revenue increase by 0.2 percent in August 2017 compared to August 2016, going from $98,154,506 in August of last year to $98,355,360 this August. Compared to July revenue of $108,380,079, August revenue was down 9.2 percent on the Gulf Coast.
River casinos in Mississippi took in $69,576,989 this August, down 4.4 percent compared to the $72,815,844 they collected in August of last year. Compared to a July revenue figure of $79,493,628, river casinos experienced a decrease of 12.5 percent in August.
Statewide revenue was down 1.7 percent in Louisiana for riverboat casinos, going from $150,275,467 to $147,646,879 in the August-to-August comparison. Compared to a July revenue figure of $179,942,737, Louisiana riverboat casinos saw a 17.9 percent decrease in August.
The land-based Harrah’s New Orleans saw revenue increase 11.1 percent in August 2017 compared to August 2016, jumping from $19,187,251 to $21,320,586. The $21,320,586 August figure was 11.1 percent lower than July’s $23,990,638.
Slots at Louisiana racetracks experienced a 2.1 percent decrease in August 2017 versus August 2016, going
