Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - Nevada’s gaming win continues to slowly recover following three months of shutdowns, but -no surprise - the overall figures badly trail 2019.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported a total casino win in October of $822.7 million, which - while a slight increase over September figures - was still 19.5 percent less than in October 2019. By comparison, September was 22.4 percent below the previous year.

Overall, the total casino win in October in Nevada was $822.7 million.

In Clark County, the gaming win win was off 23.6 percent in October to $671.8 million, with the Strip  was down just over 30 percent, with  downtown falling 22.7 percent from October of 2019.

As casinos slowly recover, they'll now have to deal with new restrictions that went into effect this week in an attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Governor Sisolak has ordered casino floors to have no more than 25% capacity for the next three weeks.
