New Report: Nevada Gaming Statistics: April Comparison

By David G. Schwartz on June 9, 2010 2:28 PM | Permalink
There's a new report up (on the reports page): a comparison of Nevada gaming statistics for April from 2004 to 2010. 

This four-pager charts the performance of Nevada casinos over the past 7 Aprils.  This month, we've got four reporting areas: Statewide, Las Vegas Strip, Boulder Strip, and Washoe County.  This gives us the overall state situation, as well as foci for tourism (LV Strip), locals (Boulder Strip) and northern Nevada (Washoe County).

Metrics include:
  • Total, slot, and table revenues
  • Slot and table hold percentages
  • Slot handles and table handles
  • Numbers of tables
  • Baccarat revenue, handle, hold data (statewide and Strip only)
