Mississippi's state-licensed casinos reported November revenues of $185.4 million, the lowest revenue figure since September 2005 when a dozen coastal casinos were shut down after Hurricane Katrina.

The November figures from the Mississippi State Tax Commission represented an $8.1 million drop from October and $1 million down from September, the previous low at $186.4 million.

Since January, the casinos have taken in $2.27 billion, compared to $2.51 billion from January to November 2008.

In November, casinos along the Mississippi Gulf Coast showed a slight improvement from October, winning $87.2 million, up from $86.3 million.

Casinos along the Mississippi River won $99.2 million last month down from $107.2 million in October.
