BATON ROUGE- February winnings for Louisiana's state-licensed casinos jumped 8.7 percent from a year ago.

State police say the 12 riverboat casinos, Harrah's New Orleans land casino and the three casinos at race tracks won $217.7 million, compared with $199.5 million for February 2011. Last month included an extra day because of the leap year.

The riverboats won $151 million, the New Orleans casino took in $28.9 million and the track casinos won $37.2 million.

In January 2012, the casinos won $185.6 million.

The figures do not include Indian reservation casinos, which are not required to report their winnings to the public.
