Coast Gaming Revenues Start New Trend

Coast casinos have reached a new plateau. Just like in January and February, March revenues topped the $100 million mark.

Oddly, the three-month totals were almost identical.  One hundred million in January, $100.1 million in February, and $100.6 million in March.

According to Mississippi State Tax Commission records, this was the first time that Coast casinos had three straight months where revenues topped $100 million.

By the way, last month's total was a modest 4 percent increase over March 2001 levels.
