Missouri Gaming Commission releases numbers for Cape Girardeau casino

Posted: Updated:
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The Missouri Gaming Commission released numbers Tuesday that included the new Isle Casino in Cape Girardeau.

According to Leann McCarthy with the commission, the city of Cape Girardeau received roughly $319,000 from the casino's first full month of operations.

That number goes from adjusted gross revenue and admission fees.

The adjusted gross revenue is gross receipts minus winnings. That was a total of about $5.37 million in November. The city of Cape received around $112,000. The state of Missouri received about $1.12 million.

Admission fees brought in $414,310. Half of that or about $207,000 went to Cape Girardeau and the other was split between worthy causes and problem gaming programs. Worthy causes, such as the Missouri Veterans Commission and Missouri National Guard, got 49 percent of that which is $203,011.90 and problem gaming received the other 1 percent at $41,431.
