Original Post [January 2019]

Everyone knows that Casinos are very profitable. But I doubt many people know the extent of their profitability.

Below, is the Net Wins [profit] for Nevada casinos for the month of November and for 2018 as a whole.

  • November 2018:
    • Sports Betting: $27.1 million
    • Roulette: $28.6 million
    • Craps: $30 million
    • Blackjack: $87.6 million
    • Baccarat: $97 million
    • Penny Slots: $276 million
  • January 2018 thru November 208

    • Craps: $386.2 million
    • Roulette: $386.8 million
    • Blackjack: $1.157 Billion
    • Baccarat: $1.225 Billion
    • Penny slots: $3.291 Billion

To avoid any confusion: That’s the money the casinos profited from customers.

Some Additional Notes:

  • These penny slot stats aren’t outliers. Over the past couple years, Penny Slots have consistently profited casinos over $200 Million a month.
  • Penny slots do NOT mean all coin slots. Those numbers above are literally only from Penny games.
    In November, Nevada casinos also made “only” $3.5 Million in 5 Cent Slots, $23 Million on Quarter Slots and $46 Million on Dollar Slots. In all, they profited $634 Million in slot machines alone in November!
  • Those looking for poker: Poker is lumped into a separate category called “Card Games” which netted $9 Million in November and $119M so far in 2018. The reason for such a ‘low number’ is because you’re playing other customers, not the house.
  • In 2017, Nevada Casinos net profit:
    • Baccarat: $1.1 Billion
    • Blackjack: $1.2 Billion
    • Craps: $393.5 million
    • Penny Slots: $3.1 Billion
    • Roulette $367.3 million
    • Sports: $248.7 million

    • No because more people may be playing the other games hence the greater profits. Unless all games are played the same amount, I don’t see any use in this stats… Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong!
