For the month of March, Nevada casinos took in more than $914 million in wins. That total brings the yearly gross to $8.4 billion, or 2.8% above what The Silver State brought in for the first nine months of 2012.

In March, the Vegas Strip saw a 13.5% jump, and is preforming 5.7% better than it did in 2012.

Other Nevada highlights were:

  • Washoe County, which was up 9.5%

  • Reno, which was up 10.8%

  • North Lake Tahoe, up 15.4%

  • Elko County, up 8.9%

  • Wendover, up 7.6% from the same period last year.

Struggling sites in March were South Tahoe, which was down 11%, and Carson Valley, which was down 2%.
