 Third-quarter revenues rose 7.2 percent at gaming company Pinnacle Entertainment, and consolidated adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was up more than 16 percent, driven in part by record quarters at L'Auberge Lake Charles and St. Louis. Income from continuing operations was $11.8 million for the quarter -- up from $1 million for the same quarter last year. Boyd Gaming, meanwhile, posted a slight decrease in revenues but enjoyed a 5.8 percent bump in total adjusted EBITDA overall and an 18 percent EBITDA among its Las Vegas Locals region properties.
