Nevada Gaming Revenues Dip in June

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board announced that gaming revenues dropped 3.3% in June, despite being the first full month with full capacity possible after Covid-19 restrictions were lifted.

Gaming revenues were down from $1.23 billion in May to $1.19 billion in June, but was still 110.5% higher than the year prior, as casinos were highly restricted in terms of capacity and social distancing. Clark County was responsible for $1.02 billion of that revenue, with most of the total coming from the Las Vegas Strip ($610.6 million).

Slot revenues were $868.1 million, up 3.2% from May, as casinos finally were able to knock down restrictions on seating at slot machines.

Sportsbetting revenues were up 7.8% to $29.2 million, with $14.7 million generated through mobile betting. Table and card game revenues dropped 16.4% to $325.3 million.

Revenues in Nevada may take a hit in August, as the state's Governor Steve Sislak implemented Emergency Directive 047 this week, which mandates mask wearing on casino floors. With some people experiencing "mask fatigue", it's entirely possible that some visitors may eschew Las Vegas until the current mandate is lifted.
