Deadwood gaming numbers hold their own

Posted: Updated:

DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - Deadwood gaming numbers are up for slightly for November.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports that total gross revenues for November rose about 1 percent to $7.49 million. The total money wagered during the month rose by the about the same percentage to $80.3 million from the previous November.

Deadwood Lead Economic Development Corporation director Chuck Turbiville says November traditionally is one of the slowest months for gaming, so holding your own is a positive thing.

The organization is hoping that with Christmas parties, the holidays and New Year's Eve falling on a Monday, December should show a slight improvement over November.

Year to date, gross revenues are up in Deadwood by nearly 7 percent, or about $6 million.
