Casinos Win 1.2 bajillion dollars in May

Nevada casinos won $1.02 billion from gamblers in May their second best month ever for a 12.5 percent gain over the same month in 2004, a state report showed Tuesday.
The latest win, the best for any May, was slightly lower than the all-time monthly record of $1.03 billion set in March by the clubs.

The state Gaming Control Board said the gain was helped by the first full month of operations at the Wynn Las Vegas, the Winky Wright-Felix Trinidad middleweight fight and the "Tiger Jam" benefit concert in Las Vegas.

The GCB's Frank Streshley said there was some concern that the new Wynn resort would "cannibalize" other Las Vegas Strip resorts "but most other properties did well. The Wynn is growing the Strip."

"May marked the tenth straight increase Nevada has had in monthly gaming win," Gov. Kenny Guinn stated. "The Las Vegas market continues to exhibit tremendous strength with no signs of a slowdown in the near future."
