CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Gambling at The Greenbrier gave the West Virginia Lottery’s revenue a boost in July.

The Charleston Gazette (https://bit.ly/1p8ep64 ) reports that the resort’s table game revenue increased 148 percent to $457,715. Video lottery revenue rose 32 percent to $429,575. That helped lift the Lottery’s overall revenue to $101 million, up from less than $100 million in June.

Despite the improvement, the Lottery’s July revenue was down about 4 percent compared to July 2013.

Lottery Director John Musgrave says competition from casinos in neighboring states continues to affect the state’s four racetrack casinos.

Video lottery at the racetrack casinos dropped nearly 5 percent to about $51 million, compared to July 2013. Racetrack table game revenues dropped by $639,000 to about $4 million.
