LAS VEGAS — State analysts say Nevada casinos were bigger winners in January than they were a year ago.

Nevada's Gaming Control Board released the latest statistics Friday showing the state's casinos won $952.7 million in January, up nearly 8 percent compared to a year earlier.

Gambling revenue is up 15 percent on the Las Vegas Strip and 14 percent in Reno, Nevada.

Casino wins didn't extend to downtown Las Vegas where the amount gamblers lost at slot machines and table games was down more than 10 percent.

The report says Nevada collected $68.4 million in taxes based on the month's gambling revenue, about 2 percent less than a year ago.
