The state of Nevada has posted their March casino revenue numbers, noting that revenues slipped 3% when compared to the same period last year.
The numbers were released by the Nevada Gaming Control Board, revealing that the gaming industry brought in $951 million in casino wins for the month, which was lower because of lower win percentage in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Strip brought in $487 for the month, down 4% from last year. Downtown Vegas revenues were also down 4% to $51 million. Reno was in the black though, with the casino bringing in $47 million up 1%, and South Lake Tahoe brought in $17 million, up 23% from the year prior.
The tax revenue created from gaming operations was $73 million, which is down 8% from last year.
