Nevada, one of the few legal online gambling states within the USA released their latest financial report on their land based gambling industry. They noted that casino revenues and online poker revenues had gone down during the month of April.
Casino revenues went down by two million dollars compared to April, 2013. During April, 2013 Nevada was able to bring in $854.3 Million while this year they were only able to bring in $852 Million. Even though this is a slight decrease in revenue it still shows that player activity is slowly dying.
Online Poker has had an extremely rough start in the Silver State, once Nevada was gained approval to operate an online poker market they had a rough start during the first few months. They have yet to break that tradition. Nevada does expect the online poker market to grow substantially over the next month as the 45th World Series of Poker begins in June. The World Series of Poker brings in nearly eighty thousand people per year, poker players from all around the world trying to win the grand prize worth millions of dollars.
The World Series of Poker will also bring new gamblers to the Nevada online poker market. These punters who’ve never experienced online poker will fall in love with the experience gained through these online card games. That in return will allow for Nevada to turn more of a profit for their online poker gambling market.
