It's the sixth time in the seven months since sports betting began that gamblers have lost more.

State Revenue Department figures released Wednesday show casinos won $173 million statewide in February, up 2 percent from $170 million in February 2018.

Receipts rose to $74 million at 15 casinos along the Mississippi River, up 1 percent from last year.

The state's 12 Gulf Coast casinos won $99 million, up 2 percent from February 2018.

Revenue statewide is up 4 percent over the last 12 months. River casinos show a 2 percent increase, the first time revenue there is up year-over-year since 2007.

Numbers exclude Choctaw Indian casinos, which don't report winnings to the state.
