Las Vegas, Nevada 2021-11-30 12:49:05 –
Las Vegas (KLAS) — October was another powerful month at Nevada Casino, which generated $ 1.2 billion in game wins. This is a $ 1 billion victory for the seventh straight month as the economy continues to recover.
Clark County alone reported over $ 1 billion in victories in September, for a total of $ 1,005,684,952.
Game wins (the amount casinos receive from gamblers) generate state tax revenues, and the Nevada Game Management Board (NGCB) reports that the state raised $ 71.8 million between October and November. According to the NGCB news release, this is an increase of 42.07% compared to the same period in 2020, an increase of about $ 21 million.
The Las Vegas Strip generated $ 702 million of the state’s total game wins from $ 640 million in October.
Compared to 2020, the number is enormous. October game wins on the Strip are 87% higher than October 2020, and game wins have increased by more than 100% in the fiscal year.
Last year’s casino pandemic has been flattened due to occupancy and travel restrictions that have significantly restricted operations, and year-to-year comparisons are expanding.
