Nevada’s nonrestricted gaming licensees reported a total “gaming win” of $944.3 million for the month of November 2015, according to a release from the Gaming Control Board.

This amounts to a 7.76% increase compared to November 2014, when licensees reported a gaming win of $876.2 million. For the fiscal year (July 1, 2015 through November 30, 2015), gaming win has increased 0.75%.

The State collected $62,027,647 in percentage fees during the month of December 2015*, based upon the taxable revenues generated in November 2015.  This represents a 30.74% (or $14,584,983) increase compared to the prior year’s December, when percentage fee collections were $47,442,664.

On the Strip, gaming revenue jumped 5.38 percent to $535.6 million. Strip gaming revenue is down 1.2 percent for the year through November, though.

The numbers reflect just the second month of increases for the State and the Strip in the past six months.
