Coast casinos have best March since 2008

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

March gaming revenues offer a glimmer of hope for Mississippi's tourism industry.  Why?  Because coast casinos had their best March since 2008.  

According to the latest Mississippi Department of Revenue report, the casinos grossed $104 million last month. It's the second consecutive month casinos raked in more money than they did a year ago.  

That's encouraging news for an industry that's coming off its worst year since Hurricane Katrina tore apart many of South Mississippi's casinos.
