Wild Rose Jefferson patrons fed about $14.7 million into penny slot machines during June, according to filings with the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.

That’s a sizable chunk of the $21.9 million wagered in the gaming facility’s full offering of slot machines last month, state reports show.

The casino posted adjusted gross gaming revenues (not including food and concert proceeds) of $2.35 million for June on admissions of 37,817 people. The admission figure counts people who enter the gaming floor, not consumer traffic connected to other events and commercial reasons that don’t involve gambling.

Wild Rose Jefferson paid out 90.4 percent of the money gambled on the casino’s 511 slot machines for the three-month period from April through June, state filings show.

The total amount of money wagered on the casino’s 13 table games stood at $676,983 for June.

Wild Rose filled state, county and state tax coffers in June as well.

The state reports show the Jefferson casino paid $10,948 in taxes to both the City of Jefferson and Greene County and $437,901 to the state.
