April Gaming Report

Slight Dip Reported

LAS VEGAS (AP) — April was just a little bit of an unlucky month for Nevada casinos, with revenue slightly down from the same month last year.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Monday that casinos won $854.3 million in April, a 0.16 percent decline.

The state collected $47.2 million in taxes on that, a 2.8 percent drop from last April.

The month’s decline was driven by a 2.3 percent drop-off on the Las Vegas Strip. Reno raked in 15 percent more casino revenue than last year.

Despite the weak month, the Nevada casino industry continues to claw its way back from the recession. Winnings are up 2.4 percent for the year.
