LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The first full month of closure for Nevada’s gaming properties resulted in a more than 99% decrease in the April 2020 gaming win.
Under a state directive, gaming properties were closed in mid-March to help avoid the spread of COVID-19.
The total gaming win was $3.6 million in April compared to $936 million in April 2019.
