Nevada Gaming Revenues Drop 8% in June

Nevada's Gaming Control Board has revealed the state's gambling numbers for June 2015, noting that the state's casinos delivered 8% less revenue than last year.

For the month the state's casinos brought in $831 million, with Las Vegas Strip revenue dropping 16% to $445 million. The big drop was caused by a lack of baccarat action, as revenue from the popular card game was down more than 50%.

South Lake Tahoe's revenue was up though, bringing in $18 million, which is up nearly 44% from last year. For the month the state brought in $48.7 million in tax revenues, which is up 8%.

For the year Nevada's gaming revenue was down 1.6% to $11.05 billion, with the Las Vegas Strip bringing in $6.3 billion of that total.

No information on internet poker revenues was available as of press time.
