Is High Roller Baccarat behind Nevada’s Gambling Revenue Rise?

February saw Nevada’s gambling revenue grow 8.5% year-on-year to $1.34 billion, largely due to an increase in high roller baccarat players.

Revenue was 4.7% higher than January 2024’s $1.28 billion, which was the strongest January in Nevada’s history. The majority of revenue, $827.6 million, came from slots, up 0.6% from 2023.
