Mississippi's state-licensed casinos rebounded from a disappointing April by winning $19.2 million more in May, but the numbers were down from a year ago.

Mississippi State Tax Commission figures show casinos won $224.3 million in May.

But gamblers held their pocketbooks and wallets tighter than a year ago as the industry took in about $11.4 million less than in May 2008. The agency says revenue for May 2008 was $235.7 million.

The casinos along the Mississippi River won $125.5 million in May compared with $128.2 million from the same period a year ago.

The Gulf Coast casinos took in $98.8 million last month compared with $107.4 million in May 2008.
