NEW ORLEANS - Gamblers lost nearly $185 million at Louisiana's state licensed casinos in October, down from the nearly $199.7 million for September and slightly more than the $181.4 million for October of last year.

Most of the money was dropped at the state's 13 riverboat casinos. Total revenue decreased to $126 million for October, down from $141.8 million in September, but up compared to the $123.5 million left a year earlier.

Harrah's land-based casino in New Orleans won $28.5 million in October, up from $25.2 million in September and from the $27 million in October a year earlier.

Slot machine casinos at the four Louisiana horse tracks won $30.3 million, compared to $32.7 million in September and $30.9 million a year earlier.
