LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Nevada's gaming win saw a bit of a rebound in June, according to statistics released Wednesday by the state Gaming Control Board.

Still, the numbers pale in comparison to what was being generated pre-coronavirus pandemic.

Overall, Nevada's gaming win in June was just under $567 million, which was down 45.6% compared to June 2019, when the gaming win was $1.04 billion.

Casinos along the Las Vegas Strip collected about $238.3 million in winnings, down 61% compared to the same month a year ago, while downtowncasinos had a 55% dropoff in gaming win, from $52.2 million in June 2019 to $23.2 million last month.

Casinos in Nevada were ordered closed in mid-March by Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Properties were allowed to reopen on June 4th.

Not all have done so, though, with the Mirage and Tropicana among the most notable properties remaining dormant.
