Nevada casinos winnings reached $1.19 billion statewide during June, accomplishing its fourth consecutive month at over the $1bn mark.
As Covid-19 restrictions were lifted, Nevada casinos took more than $1bn in winnings for the fourth month straight.
The figures from the Nevada Gaming Control Board more than double the $567m reported in June 2020, but they’re also much higher than the $1.04bn from June 2019.
Winnings from April to June stand at $3.46bn, the highest quarter in state history, toppling October to December 2006’s $3.26bn.
Last month’s figures show a good economic rebound after the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, but Governor Steve Sisolak has now reintroduced an indoor mask mandate for both vaccinated and non-vaccinated people in Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, Elko and other urban centers.
For the fiscal year ending June 30, casino winnings totalled $10.7bn (up 14.3 per cent) after decreasing nearly 22 per cent.
But a spike in COVID-19 cases since mid-May — and the restoration of indoor mask mandates for vaccinated and unvaccinated people on Friday — clouds the outlook for a state heavily reliant on tourism and gambling.
