Things Were so Bad in Nevada That They Redacted Gaming Numbers

This story was published more than 3 years ago.

After the casino industry shut down in Nevada in March, everyone expected revenues to be miserable, but they were so bad that the Nevada Gaming Control Board ended up redacting financial results in April.

The little bit we could see is that revenues were down 99.6% to just $3.6 million, as mobile sports betting and online poker were the only products available. The casino industry closed on March 17th, and is just starting to get back into operation. Yesterday we reported that MGM Resorts is re-opening next week, and that all destinations in the state that do will have to implement safety precautions to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

It's entirely possible that May revenues will also be redacted, with June likely to see the resumption of numbers as the casinos re-open their doors.
