There were more visitors to Las Vegas during the month of March but apparently they were short of gambling money.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported that gaming revenues along the Las Vegas Strip fell 14.91 percent while on a state level the revenues declined by 10.86 percent.

However, the Las Vegas Convention Center reported that March visitation increased 3.7 percent, marking the 25th consecutive gain in prior-year comparisons.

The biggest percentage drop in gaming revenues was experienced by the casinos in North Las Vegas which were down 17.77 percent.
