Facing a tough comparison with May 2015, Nevada’s gaming win fell 4.5 percent this May to $958 million.
The comparison was difficult because this May had one less weekend than the same month a year ago and there were several major events in Southern Nevada that brought in significant numbers of high rollers. The biggest of those was the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight.
“That was a huge deal,” said Gaming Control Board analyst Mike Lawton.
As a result, game and table win fell dramatically this May. Baccarat win was down 18.9 percent to just $89 million, but other table games also suffered including “21” which fell more than 15 percent. Overall, Game and Table win was $328 million, an 18.4 percent or $74 million decrease.
