In accordance with the monthly report released by the Nevada Gaming Control Board, the overall gaming win for all of the state casinos was USD 1.015 B during January 2018, two percent less than the revenue generated during that same month in 2017 —USD 1.036 B.
The highest monthly gaming win for casinos statewide was $1.165 billion in October 2007, and this January was the 36th time the casinos have topped the $1 billion win level in a month.
The 2 percent decrease may be largely attributable to this January having one less weekend day than last year as well as the Chinese New Year occurring in January last year and coming in February this year.
During the recent January, Clark County and Strip casinos showed a decline of 3.68 percent and 8.89 percent, respectively. Downtown casinos experienced a 1.76 percent rise while North Las Vegas casinos had a 0.4 percent gain. Laughlin, Boulder Strip and Mesquite casinos were up from 3.5 percent to 6.7 percent.
Washoe County casinos fared well during January with an 11.14 percent gain compared to January 2017. Reno casinos were up 13.82 percent.
For the first 7 months of the fiscal year (July 1, 2017 through Jan. 31, 2018), the casinos' gaming win has rise 1.56 percent from $6.7 billion to $6.8 billion.
