New Report: Nevada Gaming Win 2013

By David G. Schwartz on February 5, 2014 11:29 AM | Permalink

The Nevada Gaming Control releases data about the financial performance of the state’s gaming industry. This report summarizes relevant data about gaming win, hold percentage, and handle (total bet) for selected reporting areas in the state. The “Statewide” page includes information of the state’s gaming industry as a whole; the Las Vegas Strip is the area that generates over half of the state’s total revenue; Downtown Las Vegas produces less revenue, but is still a significant market; the Boulder Strip gives insight into the Las Vegas locals market; and Washoe County represents a significant piece of northern Nevada’s gaming industry.
