Louisiana State Police reported that gambling revenues at Harrah’s New Orleans Casino were down 9.4 percent from July 2000.

The $21.2 million gamblers left at the casino last month was below the $22.9 won by one of the state’s riverboats, the Horseshoe Casino in Shreveport. The land-based New Orleans casino has three times for gambling space than the riverboat.

Louisiana lawmakers had granted a huge tax cut to the gambling hall to head off the casino’s second bankruptcy in five years. Harrah’s stated that changes were being made to turn the New Orleans situation around.
