May revenue declines for all 11 AC casinos

June 10, 2011 - 3:13 PM

Newly released figures show Atlantic City's casinos shared the misery last month, with all 11 reporting revenue declines compared with May 2010.

Their combined revenue fell more than 9 percent from a year ago to $290.6 million.

The biggest loser was Trump Plaza Hotel Casino, down 25 percent.

Slot machine win fell 8.7 percent, to $206 million, while table game win decreased by 10.1 percent, to $84.6 million.

For the first five months of the year, casinos won $1.4 billion, down 7.6 percent from the same period in 2010.

Atlantic City is in the midst of a 4½-year revenue slump brought on by competition from casinos in neighboring states and the sluggish economy.
