CARSON CITY, Nev.  -- Casinos in Nevada had revenue of nearly $918 million in September, an increase of less than one percent compared with the same month last year.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board said Wednesday that the state collected $56.5 million in taxes based on that revenue. The collections are up nearly 4 percent compared with the fees collected one year ago, when the state collected $54.3 million.

The board says gambling revenues are up 2.3 percent for the first quarter of the fiscal year, which started in July. A statewide breakdown shows September gambling revenues up 2.8 percent to $520.6 million on the Las Vegas Strip compared with September 2009.

Casinos on the Strip accounted for nearly 57 percent of gambling revenues statewide during the month.
