The state of Nevada's casino industry continues to suffer in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, as revenues fell to $743 million, down 1.7% from July and down 21.9% from 2019.
The casinos have been open in a limited capacity since June after initially closing in March. Still, visitors have ben slow to return to Sin City and other Silver State casinos, with revenues struggling to make up ground to past years. September's revenues are the lowest since the state began reporting the numbers in 2003.
Players bet $8.11 billion on slots, with revenues for the machines coming in at $525.4 million, down 14.7% from last year.
It appears the struggle will be long-term for Nevada casinos, as customers may be wary to visit until a Covid vaccine is made available.
