Slot machines bring money into Nevada’s coffers

Casinos make up the largest part of the commercial gaming segment, which is very popular with U.S.-citizens and also a lucrative revenue source. In the 2018 fiscal year, casinos in the state of Nevada generated a total of more than 11 billion U.S. dollars in revenue from gaming. Las Vegas, the largest city in Nevada and globally renowned for its casinos, was the location accounting by far for the highest proportion of the commercial gaming revenue in the whole of the United States. The casino market of Las Vegas generated around six and a half billion U.S. dollars in 2017.
