Stateline casinos post gaming gain in June

Gaming numbers for the casinos in Stateline showed the highest percentage increase in Nevada during June.

According to numbers released Tuesday, Stateline saw a 44-percent increase over June 2014, raking in $17.6 million.

June 2014 saw the casinos bring in $12.2 million during the month. At least two casinos were under renovation last year.

June also was the last month of the fiscal year, with Stateline posting a 5.66 percent increase, also the largest in the state.

The Carson Valley area, which includes East Fork Township and Carson City posted a 4.01-percent increase over June 2013, with a $8.2 million win. That puts the area up 2.8 percent up for the year at $99.5 million.

Both areas combined are only a fraction of the $11 billion Nevada casinos took in between July 1, 2014, and June 30.

More than half, $6.3 billion, was won in the Las Vegas Strip alone. All of Washoe County took in $765 million. Stateline casinos brought in $262 million during the year.
