Louisiana Casinos Win 10% More

   BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana's state-licensed casinos shook

some of the economic doldrums last month, winning 10 percent more

from gamblers than in January.

      State police say the 13 riverboat casinos, Harrah's

Entertainment's New Orleans casino and the four race track casinos

took in $208.7 million in February, up from $189.7 million in

January.

      The latest figure was down 6 percent from $220 million in

winnings in February 2009. However, the January-to-January winnings

figure was down 14.6 percent. The February figure is a break from

double-digit revenue decreases that have hit Louisiana casinos in

recent months.

      Last month, the riverboats won $145 million, the New Orleans

land casino won $29.2 million and the track casinos won $34.5

million.
