"Nevada’s gaming industry won $861 million from gamblers during the month of August, according to figures released Thursday by the state Gaming Control Board. That figure was five-percent less than the money won during the same month last year. The drop was thanks to the Strip’s performance, where revenue fell to $450 million, a 15-percent drop year-over-year. Several other regions of the state either grew or remained flat, but the Strip is where Nevada’s fortunes are decided. More than half of state gaming revenue is generated there. On the $861 million, Nevada collected nearly $50 million in taxes, the state said. As of early Thursday morning, state officials haven’t yet released a breakdown of how the $861 million was generated. This is a developing story; check back later for an update.
