April was another huge month for the Nevada casino industry.
Licensors licensed to play unrestricted games in Nevada reported total gaming wins of $1,128,480,917 for the month of April 2022, according to figures from the Nevada Games Control Panel released Thursday.
Revenue was 8.57% higher than in April 2021, when casinos reported $1,039,358,922 gaming wins. For the fiscal year (July 1, 2021 through April 30, 2022), the win percentage in games increased by 46.26%.
Nevada collected $69,862,415 in percentage fees through May 2022, based on taxable revenue generated in April 2022.
Slot machine revenue for the month was over $804 million, up 1.3% year over year. Slot machine revenue returned to normal levels last month, with players in March losing a record $900 million to machines.
Last month, year-over-year revenue from board games increased nearly 32% to $324.3 million.
Online and retail sportsbooks saw a seven percent rise in April to $25.4 million. The handle has risen over 27 precedents to more than $582 million. About three-quarters of these bets are placed online as opposed to placing in-person bets.
More than $1.1 billion in total gambling winnings statewide continues an unprecedented run for Silver State casinos. The billion dollar streak for months is now 14 years old. This has never happened before in the history of gambling in Nevada.
