NEW ORLEANS - Sixteen of 18 state-regulated casinos won more money in May than in April. But five riverboats and a racetrack, all in west Louisiana, won less than in the previous May.

Figures released Thursday show that overall, gamblers lost $214.2 million - $17.8 million more than in April and $10 million more than May 2012.

The total included $149.1 million at riverboats, $29.8 million at Harrah's land casino in New Orleans and $35.3 million at racetrack slot machines.

L'Auberge Lake Charles, at $29.5 million, and the Horseshoe, at $19.9 million, led the riverboats, while the Delta Downs track casino won $17.1 million, double its nearest competitor.

The Shreveport-Bossier market took in $61.9 million, Lake Charles $58.7 million, New Orleans $54.5 million and Baton Rouge $26 million.
