State: November comparatively good month for Nevada casinos

Regulators say November was a good month for casinos compared with last year, including double-digit percentage increases in house winnings on the Las Vegas Strip and in Reno and South Lake Tahoe. The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Thursday that casinos statewide won a little more than $967 million from gamblers last month, up 6.4 percent from $909 million in November 2017.
