Casino revenue saw a slight increase in Nye County in 2014, which trends against the state and Strip numbers released last week.
Nye County’s 11 nonrestricted casinos gathered $48.5 million from gamblers last year, a 2.4 percent increase from 2013, the Gaming Control Board said Friday.
The largest portion of the county’s revenue came from multi-denominational slot machines where $26.3 million was collected. Penny slots accounted for $14.9 million.
Sports books saw revenues increase 22.3 percent to $550,000, with $285,000 coming from football betting.
Nye County’s 11 nonrestricted casinos include the Pahrump Nugget, Gold Town Casino, Lakeside Casino &RV Park, Saddle West and Stagestop Casino in Pahrump; Stagecoach Hotel and Casino in Beatty; Tonopah Station and Banc Club in Tonopah; and Longstreet Inn &Casino in Amargosa Valley.
The former Mountain View Casino, which closed late last year, is scheduled to reopen later this month as Road House Casino by members of the Herbst family.
Nonrestricted casinos have more than 16 slot machines, and usually are accompanied by table games and a sports book. The numbers do not include casinos such as Dotty’s.
Nye County makes up a small portion of Nevada gaming win, which was just more than $11 billion last year, a 1.1 percent decline from 2013.
The Las Vegas Strip’s decline was slightly sharper where gaming revenue fell 2.1 percent to $6.37 billion, ending four straight years of annual increases.
