March results in Nevada
The Nevada Board of Gaming Control released its March revenue report, showing that the state made $1.32 billion in total gaming revenue in the third month of 2023.
Unsurprisingly, slots brought in the largest share of Nevada’s March revenue: $906.4 million. Additionally, table and card games made $405.6 million – representing a 10% decline overall.
Wells Fargo analyst Daniel Polizer commented on the figures in Nevada, stating that “March was a solid month in Las Vegas and consistent with the operator’s recent comments that it could be among the record months there.”
