Northern Nevada gaming revenues fell almost three percent below the same month last year, marking the fourth decline in the first five months of 2001.

"Basically you can tie it to the depression that they're having in the Silicon Valley (San Jose-San Francisco) area," said Steve Trounday, marketing director at Fitzgeralds Casino/Hotel in Reno.

Stateline saw revenues drop almost four percent, while Elko County fell 3.6 percent in May. Only the Carson City-Carson Valley market managed an increase of a modest 1.3 percent.
