The latest Nevada Gaming Control Board figures showed that casinos with more than 15 slot machines combined for an increase of 18.3 percent over June 2000.
Gaming revenue statewide rose by 3.83 percent to $776.5 million this past June. Nye County's gaming revenue came mostly from slot machines, which accounted for about $3.35 million of the $3.39 million won. Slot machine revenue for June was up more than 21 percent from last year.
Some of Nye County's increase can be attributed to the Pahrump Nugget Hotel and Gambling Hall, which opened in late March.
