There was a slew of good news for casinos in the Show Me State during June, with record fiscal year revenues offsetting the state’s month-over-month decline during the sixth month of the year.
Overall, Missouri casinos took in $155,007,981 in total adjusted gross revenue in June, which represented a 3.7% decline from May’s sum of $160,954,587 in the May Missouri casino revenue report.
That monthly decline wasn’t enough to derail the Show Me State’s casino revenue momentum, however, with the 2022-23 fiscal year ending at $1,920,627,526 — eclipsing Missouri’s previous record (set during the 2021-22 fiscal year), when the same facilities took in $1,904,681,522 worth of revenue.
Ameristar SC Leads The Way
For the month of June, the leader in total aggregate gaming revenue was Ameristar SC of St. Louis, which took in $23.740 million during the month of June — knocking off two other St. Louis area casinos (Hollywood St. Louis, at $20.361 million and River City, at $20.114 million). There are no Missouri online casinos.
Outside of the state’s largest metropolitan area, the leaders in total aggregate gaming revenue were Ameristar Kansas City ($16.502 million), followed by Argosy and Harrah’s Kansas City, at $13.495 and $13.387 million.
Outside of the Show Me State’s two biggest cities, the leader in total AGR were Isle – Boonville ($7.209 million), followed by Century Cape ($5.714 million), St. Jo ($3.770 million) and Century Caruthersville ($3.642 million).
The leaders in slot AGR in June were Ameristar St. Louis ($19.288 million), River City St. Louis ($17.527 million), Hollywood St. Louis ($17.268 million) and Kansas City’s Ameristar Casino ($14.329 million).
The table AGR leaders were Ameristar St. Louis ($4.280 million), Hollywood St. Louis ($3.082 million), Kansas City’s Harrah’s Casino ($2.958 million) and River City Casino in St. Louis ($2.587 million).
Another Positive Note
The other major win for the Show Me State during June was that casinos in Missouri chipped in $29,296,508 to the state’s Gaming Proceeds to Education fund in June, capping off a total of $362,998,603 for the 2022-23 fiscal year.
Casino gaming remains the best wagering option in the state because the state legislature again failed to approve Missouri sports betting in this year’s session.
