Nevada’s largest casinos report $1.2B loss in fiscal 2018

Nevada’s largest casinos lost $1.2 billion during the fiscal year that ended June 30 despite seeing record revenues, bringing to an end a two-year streak of posted profits. A comprehensive annual report from state gambling regulators released Wednesday shows the 289 casinos reported the net loss from revenue of $27.1 billion. The loss was driven by expenses associated with the reorganization of Caesars Entertainment after emerging from bankruptcy.
