Casino revenue on the Mississippi Gulf Coast showed some improvement in September, but the state's gamblers lost less along the Mississippi River, dragging down overall receipts.

Statewide casino revenue fell 4.3 percent from September 2011, to $177.9 million, according to Mississippi Department of Revenue figures.

The 17 river casinos from Tunica to Natchez won $91.2 million, down 10 percent from the $101.6 million they won in September of last year.

In September, the 12 coastal casinos won a total of $86.7 million from gamblers, up 2.8 percent from the $84.3 million they won in September 2011.

The numbers exclude Choctaw Indian casinos, which aren't required to report winnings to the state.
