LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Casinos won $1.312 billion in March, posting solid gains compared to the short month of February but down 3.1% compared to March 2022, when Nevada recorded its second-highest win in state history ($1.355 billion).

The record came in July 2021, when Nevada’s gaming win was $1.359 billion

This month’s figures, released today by the Gaming Control Board, show Nevada posting its sixth-highest win ever. March was the 25th straight month that the total was over $1 billion, and the 11th straight month over $1.2 billion.

The Las Vegas Strip accounted for 55% of the state’s gaming win, pulling down $724,580,327. That’s down 2.9% compared to last March.

Compared to February, numbers were up all over the state with the exception of South Lake Tahoe, which dropped from $18.9 million in February to $16.7 million in March.

Locals casinos continued to post strong numbers, with a win of $156,633,960, up 1.92% over last March. These casinos fall into a segment described as “balance of county” because they are not included in other geographic segments. Next to the Strip, it’s the largest market in the state.
