News

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- State analysts say Nevada's casinos -- particularly those on the Las Vegas Strip -- won less in December and the 12 months of 2014 than they did a year prior.

Gaming Control Board statistics released Friday showed the state's casinos won $950.7 million in December, an 8 percent drop from a year earlier, and $11 billion total in 2014, a 1.1 percent decrease compared with 2013.

The state's gaming win is about $2 billion short of its height in 2007.

The Las Vegas Strip's winnings are down 16.4 percent in December to $555 million and 2.1 percent for the year to $6.4 billion.

Downtown Las Vegas, Laughlin, Reno as well as Wendover in Elko County all recorded more casino winnings in December and 2014.
