State says November comparatively good month for NV casinos

By  | 

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Regulators say November was a good month for casinos compared with last year, including double-digit percentage increases in house winnings on the Las Vegas Strip and in Reno and South Lake Tahoe.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Thursday that casinos statewide won a little more than $967 million from gamblers last month, up 6.4 percent from $909 million in November 2017.

Month-to-month, November's so-called "gaming win" figure was down about 9 percent from $1.063 billion in October.

The control board says that as of Wednesday, the state collected about $58.4 million in percentage fees based on November winnings. That's up almost 18.1 percent compared with a year ago.

The first five months of the fiscal year, July-through-November, have seen gambling winnings increase 1.3 percent compared with last year.
