The Last Six in Nevada

The Last Six in Nevada

Two good months can erase four negative months. That was the case in the last six months of Nevada gaming revenues. A double-digit increase in January was followed two months later by a boost of nearly 8 percent, pushing gaming revenues in the state up for the period by almost 2 percent.

The Las Vegas Strip, which contributes almost 60 percent of state gaming revenue, also did well in slots with a much higher hold percentage. But tables were very volatile, dipping more than 10 percent in April and producing almost flat revenues for the six-month period. This report was compiled by the Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, from reports issued by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
