Nevada Slots vs. Tables

Comparing the market share of Las Vegas Strip versus off-Strip by slot and table game revenues

Nevada Slots vs. Tables

Historically, slots have ruled in Nevada, creating much more revenue than the one-time king, table games. A report titled “Nevada Gaming Revenue: A Comparative Analysis of Slots and Tables,” written by Scott Boylan and published by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Center for Gaming Research, demonstrates that fact, by comparing the market share of Strip versus off-Strip by slot and table game revenues. The chart at the bottom illustrates revenue growth off slots and tables on the Las Vegas Strip between 1984 and 2015. Amounts depict the change in gaming revenue attributable to either the change in units in operation or the change in revenue-per-unit (RPU).
