NEW ORLEANS - A good December for Louisiana's state-licensed casinos capped a year in which they won roughly $2.4 billion from gamblers, up from about $2.37 billion in 2011.

Figures posted by regulators Thursday show that, for December, Harrah's land-based casino in New Orleans won $34.7 million. That was up from $28.5 million in November and, better than the $32.1 million the Harrah's casino took in during December of 2011.

Thirteen state-licensed riverboat casinos took in $143.5 million last month. The take for riverboats had been $132.7 million in November and $138.6 million in December 2011. Slot-machine casinos at the state's four horse racing tracks took in $33.2 million in December, up from $31.7 million in November and $31.2 million from December 2011.
