    After posting their biggest revenue decline in history in December, Atlantic City's 11 casinos rebounded somewhat, but still posted a 9.4 percent decline from a year ago.

         The casinos won $321.4 million
    The gambling houses won $211.6 million at the slot machines, down 9.6 percent, and $109.8 million at table games, down 9.1 percent.
    Atlantic City's revenue decline, now in its third year, coincided with the opening of slots parlors in Pennsylvania and New York, which have siphoned off gamblers who previously viewed Atlantic City as their only choice without flying to Las Vegas or driving for hours to other states.
