Wheeling's gambling revenue declines

WHEELING -- Competition from out-of-state casinos is taking its toll on Wheeling's gambling revenue.

The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register says the city's gambling revenue is down about $90,000 as Dec. 31, the midpoint of its fiscal year, approaches.

As of the end of November, the city received $372,436 from gambling-related sources, compared to $462,758 during the same period in 2012.

Table games account for a majority of the decline. Table game revenue is down almost $69,000.

Wheeling receives table game revenue from all four casinos in the state, including Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack. Mayor Andy McKenzie says the city's overall revenues have been strong and expenses have been kept down.
