Results from the month rose significantly when compared to January.

The Missouri Gaming Commission has published its casino results for the month of February. The state’s casinos brought in a collective total of $156.9m in adjusted gross revenue (AGR).

This month’s revenue rose by 14% when compared to results from January. Total revenue for February remained close to the same as figures released one year ago.

Top performing casinos during the month include Ameristar Casino, Hollywood Casino and River City Casino, which brought in an AGR of nearly $64m, close to 41% of the state’s total. Ameristar Casino grabbed the top spot for the month, with an AGR of $23.9m.

River City and Hollywood brought in revenue totals of $20.3m and $20.6m respectively.

Missouri’s casinos contributed a combined total of $39.2m to the state in taxes.

In other state news, Missouri State Treasurer Vivek Malek recently said he does not plan to remove decals with the official state seal and his name from unregulated slot machines, according to a local news report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

He said keeping the decals is part of an agreement he made with “a politically connected company” that has supplied gas stations and bars with these machines.

Malek noted in a three-page letter to Representative Scott Cupps that “no taxpayer dollars were used to create the stickers” and went on to add that the decals are for spreading the word for his office’s unclaimed property program.

Malek said in his letter, “I met with officials of the video gaming company and they expressed a desire to help spread the word, which I appreciate.

“Missourians from all walks of life have unclaimed money, and I just want to return it to them.”
