Nevada casinos and sportsbooks break records

3 January 2022

For the ninth straight month, Nevada reached at least $1 billion in gaming revenue after the numbers were reported for November. The record numbers in November were helped by the return of international travelers to Las Vegas.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board released that Nevada’s non-restricted gaming licensees reported a total “gaming win” of $1,321,624,274 for November 2021, a 71.38% increase compared to November 2020. The numbers reported for November were just below the single-month record of $1.36 billion reported in July 2021.

The casinos in The Silver State already have recorded the third-highest gaming revenue year with December's numbers still yet to be added. If December continues the trend of hitting $1 billion or more, then Nevada would easily break its single-year record.

Casinos weren't the only ones having all the fun. Sportsbooks in Nevada had their name in the history books as well. For the first time, Nevada sportsbooks took in $1 million in wagers in back to back months.

Of the $1.1 billion in bets placed, the books won $72 million which topped the previous record of $61.8 million posted in November 2020.
