Nevada Gaming Revenues Dip in July

Today the Nevada Gaming Control Board released the state's July gaming numbers, revealing that revenues dipped a bit in July and causing the state to have a lower result for the first time in five months.

Casinos across the state brought in $996.4 million, down 0.16% from the same time last year. The Vegas Strip was the cause for the drop, as revenues dropped 5.7% to $565.6 million. Slots brought in $667.8 million of the total, but were offset by poor table revenues, which dipped 10.2% to $328.6 million.

Baccarat brought in $101 million, but was down 16.4% from last year. Blackjack revenue was down 6.6% to $93.4 million, and craps was down as well to $35.1 million or down 13.3%. Roulette did gain 1.6% to $32.8 million.

Sportsbooks revenue was up 674% to $4.1 million, with baseball leading the way with $3.8 million, up 123% from last year. Other sports, which includes soccer, was up 38.5% to $2.9 million thanks to the FIFA World Cup. American football was down 33% to $418,000. Race books were down 13.6% to $3.15 million.

Obviously some of the casino games have been down in numbers more than others but when you see how the immense growth in the sportsbook branch I don't think the Nevada casinos should be moaning too much about the numbers.
