ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The lagging economy isn't keeping people away from Missouri casinos.
The Missouri Gaming Commission reports that revenue rose 4 percent at the state's casinos in July, compared to a year ago. Admissions also were up at seven of the 12 casinos.
Gaming Commission Executive Director Gene McNary said Wednesday that for some people, especially many senior citizens, gambling has become part of their daily routines.
