DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) – Gaming revenue in Deadwood was up roughly 1 percent in February compared to the same time last year.
The Black Hills Pioneer reports that the amount of money wagered, however, was down 2.7 percent. Industry officials blame the drop on losing slot machines.
Weston Pleinis is the general manager of the Lodge at Deadwood. He says the Deadwood market had 322 fewer devices this February compared to last February.
Year-to-date table game revenues are up from about $1.5 million to about $2 million.
