DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - Gaming officials in the state say Deadwood’s November gambling revenue saw a small increase over the same month last year.

Gamers in the Northern Hills town generated more than $7 million in gross revenue in November. Officials say revenue was up 0.61 percent, or $43,000, last month compared to November 2013.

The South Dakota Commission on Gaming says slot machine play fell nearly 4 percent to $5.9 million last month. At the same time, table game play jumped more than 35 percent to $1.1 million.

Mike Rodman is the executive director of the Deadwood Gaming Association. Rodman says the commercial casino industry nationwide has shown signs of weak performance.

He adds that the increase in table game business shows that patrons are increasingly enjoying gaming options beyond slot machines.
