This is great news consider the economy and recent reports and news of some casinos cutting back staff. Hopefully growth and employment will continue.
The Coast’s gross casino revenue bounced back in October, coming out almost identical to October 2007 despite the slow economy.
The Mississippi State Tax Commission just released the figures that show the 11 Coast casinos won $96.9 million in October after taking a big hit in September from hurricanes Gustav and Ike. October 2008 figures were just $21,000 behind last year’s revenue, which was the second highest ever posted for October.
