MISSISSIPPI/LOUISIANA — Revenue at Mississippi’s Gulf Coast casinos, buoyed by the addition of the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort, increased in December year over year while casinos in Louisiana and river casinos in Mississippi saw revenue decrease. Gaming revenue was down statewide in Mississippi and Louisiana in the December year-over-year comparison.
Mississippi casinos took in $167,110,180 in December, down half a percent point from the $167,997,306 collected in December of last year. However, statewide revenue in December was 3.7 percent higher than the November revenue  gure of $161,170,385.
Mississippi Gulf Coast casinos saw revenue jump by 6.9 percent in December 2015 compared to December 2014, going from $84,641,265 in December of last year to $90,500,301 this December. Compared to November revenue of $91,421,511, December revenue was down 1 percent on the Gulf Coast.

For the year, Mississippi casinos brought in 1.4 percent more revenue in 2015 than in 2014. A 5.9 percent bump in annual revenue on the Mississippi Gulf Coast offset a 3.5 dip at river casinos.
Riverboat casinos in Louisiana experienced a 4.5 percent drop
in revenue in December 2015 compared to December 2014, going from $172,711,223 to $165,003,956 in the December-to- December comparison. Compared to a November revenue  gure of $149,418,708, Louisiana riverboat casinos saw a 10.4 percent increase in December.
The land-based Harrah’s New Orleans saw revenue fall
27.3 percent in December 2015 year over year, going from $30,347,674 to $22,056,708. The $22,056,708 December  gure was 2.9 percent lower than November’s $22,709,050.
