JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi casino revenue fell in November, as continued weakness at casinos along the Mississippi River outweighed gains on the Gulf Coast.

State Department of Revenue figures show casinos statewide won $156 million from gamblers in November, down 5 percent from $164 million in November 2013.

The 12 coastal casinos won $82.8 million, up less than 1 percent from November 2013. The 17 river casinos won $73.1 million, down 10 percent from November 2013.

It’s the 25th month out of 29 that casinos have won less from gamblers compared to the previous year. Coastal casinos are performing much better, with revenue rising slightly over the last year. Statewide revenue rose in October thanks to strength at coast casinos.

The numbers exclude Choctaw Indian casinos, which don’t report winnings to the state.
