Number of commercial casinos in the United States from 2005 to 2017*

Number of commercial casinos in the U.S. 2005-2017 The number of commercial casinos in the United States year-over-year has been relatively consistent, showing a steady increase from 2010 onwards. This changed in 2017 where there was a total of 460 commercial U.S. casinos, showing a steep decline from the previous year's figure of 524.
Popularity of gaming in the U.S.

Over half of the leading casino companies worldwide are based in the U.S., therefore it comes as no surprise that gambling is a popular past-time. Casinos make up the largest part of the commercial gaming segment, popular with U.S.-citizens and international tourists alike. In 2017, commercial gaming in the U.S. generated approximately 40 billion U.S. dollars in revenue.

Las Vegas

Unsurprisingly, Las Vagas had by far for the highest proportion of the commercial gaming revenue in 2017. Comparatively, the second largest U.S. commercial gaming location was Atlantic City, totalling nearly two and a half billion U.S. dollars in commercial gaming revenue. Other leading commercial gaming markets include cities such as Chicago, New York City, and Baltimore.
