How ya’ll are? Well, New Orleans casinos seem to be doing just fine! As the world moves to regain some normalcy, gambling in The Big Easy is outrunning the rest of the state.
Gambling win across Louisiana was just shy of $230 million in the month of May, which includes the casinos in the New Orleans area, racinos, and the 10 riverboat casinos across the state.
But the city of New Orleans out performed the rest of the state in May, bringing in about $56 million in May… even with pandemic restrictions still in place. Harrah’s was the city’s best performer, up 6.7% and bringing in well over $26 million over that time.
