PIERRE, South Dakota — Deadwood gambling officials say October revenue has hopped up significantly over last year, when the region was dealing with extreme snowfall.

Figures released on Tuesday show that gambling revenues have increased more than 20 percent over last October, and more than 10 percent over the same month in 2012.

Deadwood Gaming Association Executive Director Mike Rodman says he's pleased with the numbers — especially with the increase over 2012, when Deadwood wasn't dealing with heavy snowfall.

Rodman says table games also are enjoying increased popularity. The state gaming commission is now drafting a measure the Legislature will consider to add three new voter-backed games to Deadwood's offerings: keno, craps and roulette.
