August Revenue Drops Baffle Mississippi Casino Officials - TUNICA, MS - /Sun Hearld/ - Casino officials and analysts are baffled by Mississippi’s August revenue figures, which indicate double-digit declines from July’s record winnings and from last August. "I’m shocked by the size of the drop," says Brian Richard, senior research analyst with the Mississippi Gaming Association. Winnings at the 29 state-regulated casinos were $213 million, the worst August since 1998. The Coast's 12 casinos reported a 9 percent drop in revenue from August 2001. Statewide, revenue fell by 10 percent. In comparison, Louisiana's state-licensed casinos reported a 2.4 increase in winnings over the same time. Richard speculated the drop might have been caused by a casino incorrectly reporting its winnings. Casinos submit their gambling revenue figures to the State Tax Commission, which compiles the numbers and releases a report every month. Rich Westfall, senior director of marketing for the Isle of Capri, said the Biloxi resort saw about a 7 percent increase in revenue and gamblers during August. Westfall said the numbers indicate that the Coast casino market hasn't been affected by the Rebel flag controversy. "It seems like our casinos in the rest of the state are holding steady or increasing," he said. "I can't figure out what caused this change."

Park Place Proposes London Casino - LONDON - Park Place Entertainment, the world's most powerful gambling organisation and owner of Caesars Palace, is in talks to open a huge casino at the controversial Millennium Dome site in south London.

Senior officials from Park Place flew into London last month. They were led by Peter George, once chief executive of the British hotels-to-betting combine Hilton Group, now head of Park Place's international division.

George met Anschutz Entertainment Group, which, together with property firm Quintain and Australian retail developer Lend Lease, this year won a 999-year lease on the Dome and surrounding land. It is understood that Anschutz is keen for Park Place to run a casino to complement its plans for a massive hotel, sports and concert venue.

Park Place's interest in the Dome depends on government plans to liberalise restrictive gambling laws. Legislation is expected in the 2003 Queen's Speech.
