Las Vegas Poker Revenues has marked significant growth with February cash games raking 8.1 million.
Sin City's poker rooms collected $8.11 million in cash game revenue during February and it is a 2 percent increase compared to the same month last year according to reports from Nevada gaming regulators.
The game of poker had a solid year in 2017 throughout Nevada, with revenues far exceeding any year pre-Moneymaker effect and the World Series of Poker Main Event boasting its third largest participation in history.
The largest county in the state, Clark County which also includes Las Vegas boasts of 39 poker rooms. Most of the poker rooms are located in Las Vegas and Henderson, its suburban city.
Conventionally, February isn't the month for the poker industry in Sin City. Because of the Super Bowl, there aren't many major activities that bring poker enthusiasts to town during the month.
The past few years have witnessed Monte Carlo, Tropicana and other Las Vegas poker rooms closing down. However, it has not impacted the overall poker revenues. In fact, the poker rooms are experiencing even more rush as the players from the closed rooms throng in numbers to play poker in search for better alternatives.
Nevada now has a fewer poker tables than it used to have in 2010, but the value of each table has went on to increase these days.
On an average, each poker table generated $193,000 in revenues during 2017 which is a 31 percent increase as compared to 2010 ($147,000).
