April a profitable month for coast casinos

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Last month saw an uptick for Mississippi's gaming industry.  As we enter the summer tourism season, coast casinos are on a bit of a roll.

The monthly revenue report for April just came out, and it shows the coast casinos had another strong month.

They grossed almost $98 million. That's more than three percentage points higher than they raked in last April, when the revenue totals were around $94 million.

For the year, the casinos are $20 million ahead of where they were at this point in 2015.
