Nevada falls short of four consecutive $1bn months
Nevada was unable to record a fourth straight month of $1bn in gambling revenue in April, as the US state posted $953.7m (€816.6m) in gaming win.
The amount is lower than the $1.03bn collected in March, but does represent a 7.6% increase on the total collected in April of last year.
Nevada has enjoyed a strong start to the year, with gaming revenue in January, February and March exceeding $1bn.
The state had not recorded three consecutive months of over $1bn in gaming win since 2008, with its most successful billion-dollar streak lasting for eight months from October 2006 to March 2007.
For April, slot machine revenue increased 10.1% year-on-year to €658.9m, while table games revenue was also up 2.4% to €294.8m.
Blackjack revenue improved by 8% to €94.1m and roulette was also up nearly 69% to $31m, but baccarat revenue dropped 17.7% to €65.1m and craps by 3.7% to €29.9m.
