With the exception of the Strip and downtown Las Vegas, Nevada’s gaming markets made a strong rebound after being allowed to reopen in early June.

The Strip was down 61.4% compared to June of last year and downtown off 55.5%.

Because of the slow recovery in the south, statewide win was down 45.55% to $566.8 million for the month. A year ago, total win topped $1 billion.

Across the state, slots and other machine-based gambling recovered better than in-person games like Baccarat and “21.” Game and table win was down 57.3% to $172.7 million while slot win fell 38.1% to $394.1 million.

In the south, one factor was the near 70% decrease in Baccarat win as the high rollers stayed home through most of June.

But smaller markets across the state came back pretty strong and one of the best recoveries was by the Carson Valley Area, which includes valley portions of Douglas County. Casinos there posted $9.2 million in win, just 1.7% less than the $9.4 million they won a year ago.

Washoe County was still down but only by 6.8% with $65 million in total win. Elko casinos were off just 2.1% compared to June 2019 but Churchill County casinos were actually up 1.7% for the month, winning a total of $1.57 million.

Tahoe venues were in the middle. South Shore casinos at Stateline reported just over $13 million in win. While that’s a significant recovery, it’s still 20% down from a year ago. North Shore casinos at Crystal Bay were in a similar spot, down 23% at $1.6 million for the month.

For the fiscal year ending June 30, statewide gaming win was down 21.7% because of the nearly three month, pandemic-induced shutdown of Nevada’s gaming licensees. Slot win decreased 20.5% over the year. Table, counter and card games win fell 23.8%.

Carson Valley win for the fiscal year was down 19.2% to $89.5 million and South Shore casinos down 15.4% to $188.4 million. North Shore casinos fell 21% for the year, winning just $20.7 million.

Reno was down 19% to $507.4 million and Washoe County as a whole down 18.6% to $695.9 million.
