Nevada Casino reported a Solid November performance driven by baccarat and sports betting, although the overall result failed to top the previous month $1b revenue tally.
Recently, figure was released on thursday by the Nevada Gaming Control Board shows statewide gaming revenue of just under $967.2m, a 6.4% rise over the same month last year but well behind the $1.06b market reported in October 2018.
November’s gains were concentrated on the Las Vegas Strip, where revenue shot up 10% to $534.5m. It also helped that November 2017s baccarat performance was particular dire, down 23.5% year on year.
Baccarat’s gains allowed it to reclaim the table game revenue crown, despite blackjack rising a respectable 4.1% to $87.6m in November. The other major table games had a mixed month with craps for 5% to $30.4m Roulette slumped 13% just under $28.7m. Slots revenue was up 1.3% to $634.9m.
The books took another bath on baseball in November 2018, losing nearly $5.9m, but such was the carnage of the previous November that this was viewed as a comparatively fortunate turn.
It’s worth noting that New Jersey’s regulated sports betting market generated revenue of $21.4m in November, within shouting distance of Nevada’s Result.
