Nevada Casinos Haul in $1.1 Billion in August

The state of Nevada's gaming revenues topped $1 billion for the sixth consecutive month, as the state's casinos brought in $1.166 billion.

The casino industry is on a roll, eclipsing even numbers from August 2019, which is before the Covid-19 pandemic caused casinos to temporarily close and then re-open with restrictions in place.

Las Vegas Strip casinos saw a 97.2% jump in revenues from last year, raking in $625.7 million. Clark County as a whole had $993.4 million, up 67.3% from last year.

The North Lake Tahoe market was up 9.3% from last year, while South Lake Tahoe was up 8%. There was a negative impact from wildfires in California, which prevented some visitors from traveling on Highway 50 to the resorts.

It's believed that concerts and events also helped draw in more gamblers. Guns 'n Roses performed, and Cirque du Solei's Las Vegas shows also reopened during this period.

Taxes generated from gambling for the year to date were $263.9 million, up 11.4% from last year.
