Nevada Casinos Post 2017 Revenue Record

This story was published more than 6 years ago.

Nevada casinos had a big 2017 as the Nevada Gaming Control Board revealed that revenues for brick and mortar casinos were up 3.7% when compared to 2016.

The numbers revealed that casinos brought in $26.2 billion for the year, which was a big improvement on the year prior. The state received $852.2 million in gambling tax money, which equals 7.7% of all casino revenue for the year. The Vegas Strip rose 3.9% for the year to $17.7 billion, with profits of $814 million, up 191.4% from the year prior. Downtown Las Vegas raked in $1.2 billion in revenues, up 10.3% from last year, while profits reached $110.3 million.

No details on the state's online poker numbers were available as of press time.

The impressive haul for Nevada comes despite a mass-shooting that took place in October that resulted in 58 murders and 546 injuries.

Obviously 2017 have been great for Nevada land based casinos, for sure growth cant be compared to the most of the online leading brands but for a business that many of us though it's doomed to extinction is quite an argument it won't happen, at least near future.
