The number, published by the Nevada Board of Gaming Control, is a 3% increase for the fiscal year. The total is a 3% increase from September 2022, and marks the 20th consecutive month the state has crossed the $1 billion mark.
Breaking down the total amount, Clark County numbers totaled $1.1 billion, of which $705.8 million came from the Las Vegas strip. Washoe County revenue totaled $91.4 million, with South Lake Tahoe and Elko County reporting figures of $18.1 million and $35.1 million, respectively.
