LAS VEGAS (AP) - Casinos on the Las Vegas Strip have seen their revenue drop for two consecutive months.

Data released by state regulators on Thursday show the casinos on the Strip won about $485.8 million from gamblers in November, the second straight month they experience a 6 percent revenue decrease compared to the previous year.

The report from the Nevada Gaming Control Board shows casinos statewide took in about $909.1 million last month. That's a 2.3 percent decrease compared to the same month last year.

Revenue at casinos in downtown Las Vegas increased about 6.9 percent to $54.3 million.

The state benefited with about $49.5 million in percentage fees based on the taxable revenues generated in November. That's a decrease of 11.1 percent compared to the same period in 2016.
