Nevada Casino Winnings Decrease Slightly in March
Gaming News

CARSON CITY, Nev.-- Regulators say Nevada casinos won a little more than $912 million in March, a slight decline compared with the same month a year ago. The state Gaming Control Board reported Tuesday that Nevada casino winnings were down less than 1 percent year-to-year, after winning $918 million in March 2009.

However, the state took in almost $80 million based on those revenues. That's a nearly 7 percent increase compared with the same period a year ago. The Las Vegas Strip, Laughlin, Reno area and South Lake Tahoe all showed increases in casino win. Downtown Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Sparks showed the biggest declines.

The board says statewide casino winnings are down just under 4 percent for the fiscal year beginning last July 1.
