Nebraska gambling revenues down

Money wagered in Nebraska on keno, pickle cards, bingo and lotteries continues to slide. The state Department of Revenue said earlier this week that $58.1 million was wagered from April through June, a decrease of almost 7 percent from the previous quarter.

Tax receipts from charitable gaming totaled $1.2 million from April through June, which is nearly 8 percent less than the previous quarter.

During the fiscal year that ended June 30, about $232.5 million was wagered. That's nearly 10 percent less than the $257.5 million that was wagered the previous fiscal year.
