Winnings from gamblers at Louisiana's state-licensed casinos last month were virtually unchanged from
April 2009.

That's according to a state police report issued Tuesday.

In April, the 13 riverboat casinos, Harrah's downtown New Orleans casino and three casinos at horse racing tracks won $200.5 million - down 1 percent for $202.6 million in April 2009.

The riverboats won $135.7 million, Harrah's took in $32 million and the track casinos won $32.8 million.

The latest tally was down 2.9 percent from the $206.5 million lost by players in March 2010.
