While Las Vegas is facing various challenges, including a decline in revenue on the famous Las Vegas Strip, January saw Nevada’s overall revenue reach $1.2 billion suggesting that there may be a strong year ahead.

The figure, released by the Nevada Gaming Control Board, is a small increase from January 2023 and represents the largest total ever for January. The revenue comes from several sources such as in-person betting in casinos and sportsbooks, online sports betting, online poker, and horseracing.

Big Revenue Increase in Reno

There was a sizeable increase in revenue from Washoe County and in particular Reno. It was up year-over-year by 55%.

Furthermore, sportsbooks across the state also enjoyed a good month with total winnings of more than $64.7 million. This was the highest amount in the past seven years and was a significant contributor to the months’ revenue gains.

Revenues Down on the Las Vegas Strip

While there was good news from some parts of the state, the Las Vegas Strip saw a 3.8% year-over-year fall in casino revenue, mainly due to a decline in table game earnings. Nonetheless, there were revenue increases in several regions including downtown Las Vegas, Laughlin, Mesquite, and rural areas.

Furthermore, Nevada enjoyed a strong 2023 in which it saw record gaming revenue of $15.5 billion in the fiscal year.
