Nevada Online Poker Revenue Falls To $742,000

Month's Revenue Lowest Since State Began Releasing Figures In February


The state of Nevada officially had its worst month ever for online poker.

The state’s three sites—, Ultimate Poker and Real Gaming—had combined revenues (rake) of $742,000 for August.

That’s the lowest ever for the fledgling Silver State industry.

The good news is that revenues for the state’s three online poker sites only began getting recorded and released publicly since February.

Here’s a look at the other months:

July: $985,000
June: $1,037,000
May: $862,000
April: $792,000
March: $926,000
February: $824,000

It is worth noting that June and July’s revenues were greatly aided by the World Series of Poker running in Sin City. That annual festival brings in thousands of poker players.

Overall Nevada gaming revenue dipped 3.7 percent (year-over-year) in August, ending five straight months of statewide increases. Nevada’s gaming facilities won $920.2 million from gamblers in August, of which Strip properties took in $553.2 million.
