The American Gaming Association, the gambling industry’s national trade group, said Wednesday that U.S. Commercial Casinos won a record $5.3 billion from gamblers in March, the Best Single-Month total Ever. The previous record month was July 2021 at $4.92 billion. There was little doubt that March would be a stellar revenue month for casinos nationwide after the Nevada Gaming Control Board in April reported that month to be the second biggest in state history. July 2021 remains the Best ever for Nevada.
Tourism experts say there’s still room for growth in the Silver State because International Travel and the Convention and Trade-Show Industry still haven’t returned to pre-pandemic levels. Nevada International visitation and trade show and convention attendance are improving but have not returned to 2019 numbers, both of which are critical components to Southern Nevada’s economy. Trade Shows and Conventions fill hotel rooms mid-week.
