Nevada casinos get more gamblers, but revenues still lag
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada casinos are getting more gamblers back a year after the coronavirus pandemic began, but house winnings on the Las Vegas Strip still lagged in February.
That’s according to a key state Gaming Control Board report showing February casino winnings and revenues nearly flat statewide compared to January and down nearly 26% from February of 2020.
A board analyst noted the Las Vegas Strip accounted for nearly 92% of the statewide decrease in monthly casino winnings.
McCarran International Airport said Thursday that international passenger traffic was down nearly 95% in February compared with the same month a year ago.
