Gambling and travel have been slow to recover since Nevada casinos began reopening June 4 according to monthly reports showing Las Vegas airport passenger numbers down nearly 77% compared with a year ago and a key casino house winnings index down 45.5%. The almost $567 million in statewide “gaming win” that the Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Wednesday was an improvement from near-zero in April and May due to coronavirus closures. McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas reported handling about 1 million arriving and departing passengers during June, down from more than 4.4 million in June 2019.
