After Mississippi casinos capped off a competitive fiscal year in June, the expectation was that they would get off to a decent start in July. They met that expectation even if they didn’t leave themselves much wiggle room.
Revenues from Mississippi’s casinos and sportsbooks during July failed to reach record heights, but didn’t give ground, either. For the 2023-24 fiscal year to be record-setting in Mississippi, gaming licensees might get more creative.
For the most part, gaming revenue and taxes from Mississippi’s casino were unchanged in July compared to the same month in 2022. For example, the state’s tax haul for the month grew by just eight-tenths of a percent year-over-year.
