The article reports that the winnings of Nevada casinos fell 1.1%, winning only about $949 million according to the June 2008 report of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. It states that the Strip's revenue was down 3% to $486.4million. Though the Boulder Strip and downtown Las Vegas reported increase winnings to 25% and 10%, respectively, it states that those increases were due to a reporting anomaly. A summary of the fiscal year, which ended June 30, 2008, was also included in the Board's report.
