Harrah’s powers casino market

  // Thursday, 21 August 2014 18:52 //

For the second month in a row, the New Orleans casino market brought in more money than the year before, thanks to a strong performance at Harrah’s New Orleans.

The three riverboats, land-based casino and slots at the Fair Grounds brought in $53.9 million in July, a 1.9 percent gain, according to figures released Thursday by the Louisiana State Police.

That compares to $52.9 million in winnings during July 2013.

Winnings at the Harrah’s casino were up 12.4 percent last month to top $28.5 million. That offset the declining business at the three riverboat casinos in the New Orleans market, which were down 8.5 percent to nearly $21.9 million.

The Amelia Belle riverboat posted the smallest decline, with winnings dropping by 3.8 percent to $4 million.
