Statewide gaming revenue reached $1.023b in March, marking the second consecutive month that Nevada reached the billion-dollar threshold. According to the Nevada Gaming Control Board, the state got the magical number thanks to a solid performance of the state’s slot machines ($675.3m) and other table, counter, and card games, with the exception of baccarat. March Madness also boosted Nevada’s books as the basketball accounted for a record $495.1m in wagers and revenue of $35.2m. Meanwhile, gaming revenue at Las Vegas Strip casinos fell 3.8% to just under $552m.
