Nebraska’s two racetrack casinos had their strongest month yet in February.
According to figures from the Nebraska Racing and Gaming Commission, WarHorse Casino in Lincoln and Grand Island Casino Resort combined to produce more than $1.34 million in gaming taxes last month, the highest amount so far in the state’s brand-new casino industry.
Based on the casino tax rate of 20% of gross revenue, that means the two casinos made about $6.7 million before expenses during February.
WarHorse Casino generated the bulk of the tax money, about $858,000.
