Gambling revenue in Nevada was down 2.6% month-on-month, but stayed above the $1bn mark, in April.
Comparisons to April 2020 were not available for the vast majority of verticals, as all gaming establishments in the state were closed because of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
April 2021’s $1.04bn total marked a second consecutive month in which state revenue passed $1bn, after March this year marked the first time Nevada hit that milestone since February 2020.
Slots continued to be the main source of revenue, bringing in $793.7m, up 2.8% from March, as players staked $11.05bn. Multi-denomination slots brought in $355.2m, while penny slot revenue came to $340.8m.
Table games, meanwhile, produced revenue of $245.8m, down 16.7% month-over-month, as amounts wagered declined 6.5% to $2.02bn.
