“It’s obvious the increased table limits had an effect on the industry showing a 20 percent jump in table revenue,” said Weston Pleinis, casino general manager for The Lodge at Deadwood.
“The Lodge showed a nice increase in the table game play with August looking even stronger. I also like to see that the slot machine revenue was up almost five percent also. As an operator I was surprised that we had as much high limit action as we had. I didn’t think the play would have been that heavy and to see that trend continuing and even increasing in August is exciting. Properties are doing a lot of marketing and putting on a lot of great events. I expect the trend to continue for Deadwood.”
With the exception of June, Deadwood gaming revenue has been up from 2011 every month this year.
