The commercial casino industry in the United States achieved its second worst month of the year in October.

US.- According to data compiled by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ (UNLV) Center for Gaming Research, the commercial casino industry totaled US$3.4 million from customers in October, which bring year-to-date numbers to US$35 billion.

Revenue during the tenth month of the year was virtually flat when compared to the same period in 2016, the UNLV said, and explained that the performance was the second-worst month of the year, only February being ahead, with one fewer day this year and a 2.2 percent decline.

It is estimated that the bad results come after Nevada’s poor performance in October, which holds a 30 percent of gaming win and only increased a quarter of the percentage point, whilst winnings on the Strip decreased six percent to US$528 million. This results were mainly because of the shooting that happened during the first weekend of the month.

As the UNLV said, the US$35 billion that commercial casinos totaled during the first 10 months if the year was up 2.7 percent when compared to 2016.
