March strong month for Stateline casinos

Staff Reports

March went out like a lion at Stateline, at least where the gaming take from the casinos was concerned.

The main source of Douglas County’s gaming revenues posted a 31.64 percent increase over March 2013, according to figures released today by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

The Stateline casinos brought in $14.9 million during the month, up from $11.3 million the previous year.

March is not a peak time for gaming revenues at Stateline, but a good March brought the clubs to within 2 percent of last year’s take of $168.6 million with only a quarter left in the fiscal year.

Gaming in the East Fork Township and Carson City was down 2.83 percent with $8 million during March. Both areas are counted together by the Gaming Control Board. So far during the year they’ve collected $72.2 million, less than a percent less than last year.

Statewide, nonrestricted gaming licensees reported a 7.6 percent increase in the win for March, raking in $982 million during the month, and $8.4 billion.
