Nevada Gaming Win: Up Again

Posted by Hunter

The October gaming win figures for Nevada were up again - barely - after a huge October in 2005.

Interestingly enough, the Strip was actually down a bit with holds not as high as in previous months.

Some 'locals' play saved the numbers from being down overall.

"Heavy slot machine play saved the bottom line for most casino venues. Slots generated $734 million in October, a solid 7.2 percent more than in October 2005."
Yes, but slot Hold was higher. Merrill Lynch:
"Slot win strengthens on increased hold percentage
Total slot win for the Strip (58% of total win) increased 5.5% Y/Y in October to $307.2M. This growth was primarily a result of a 76 bps Y/Y increase in hold percentage, while was offset by a -4.9% decrease in gaming devices and a -5.3% decline in slot drop. Win per slot per day increased 11% Y/Y this month against a tough comp of 20% last October."
