Nevada Casino Winnings Edge up 0.1 Percent in 2010

Posted: Updated:

CARSON CITY, Nev. -- State gambling regulators say Nevada casino winnings edged up a slight 0.1 percent in 2010, compared with a year earlier.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Thursday that casinos in Nevada won $10.4 billion for the calendar year. That was up about $12 million over calendar 2009. Taxes on casino winnings make up about a third of Nevada's general fund revenues, and the so-called casino "gaming win" hasn't returned to 2004 levels.

But even with a big drop since 2007, state officials are pointing to a 10-year average of 1 percent growth per year. The year-end gambling report showed revenues were down 4.3 percent in Washoe County, 2.3 percent in Elko County and less than 1 percent in Clark County. Casino winnings on the Las Vegas Strip jumped 4.1 percent.
