1.) Blackjack - $1,444,803,000

2.) Baccarat - $902,635,000

During this same time period, craps was a distant third on the revenue list at $473,837,000 and was closely followed by roulette ($370,760,000). After that there was a dramatic falloff with 3-Card Poker ($175,501,000), mini-baccarat ($154,117,000), Pai Gow Poker ($132,942,000), Let It Ride ($63,371,000), Pai Gow ($36,451,000) and Caribbean Stud Poker ($14,301,000) rounding out the Top 10.

Other interesting items from the report include the fact that slots are still, by far, the best revenue-producing option for casinos. During this same 12-month period, the one-armed bandits added a whopping $8,414,415,000 to the casino coffers, which is double what all table games and the race and sports books brought in combined ($4,232,554,000).

Speaking of the race and sports book, the casinos won $163,214,000 from sports bettors and an additional $94,767,000 from race book players. Football ($70 million) and basketball ($36 million) were the most popular sports to wager on. The one betting option that casinos actually lost money with during this 12-month period was pari-mutuel racing, which saw the public win $78,000.
