This Week in Gambling: US casinos bounce back from pandemic

17 June 2021

What a great week of gambling news, as U.S. casinos have just seen their second highest revenue month ever. Thanks to the continued spread of sports betting, the gambling industry continues to recover from the pandemic by leaps and bounds. In addition to U.S. casinos recovery and sports betting news, there are big plans in Las Vegas for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday.

As the country and the gaming industry bounce back from the pandemic, US casinos gambling revenue for April nearly set a record. In fact, gambling revenue for the month of April was the second highest it’s ever been.

Commercial gaming across US casinos games, sports betting, and online gambling totaled nearly $4.4 billion, just shy of the all-time record of $4.8 billion. The numbers are even more impressive when you consider that about 80% of casinos in the country are still under COVID restrictions.

According to our friends at the American Gaming Association, profits from slot machines did hit record levels while bets on sporting events fell. American gambling revenue from online bets was $300 million.

Helping with the recovery of US casinos is the continued spread of sports betting. Months after most Louisiana betting on sports was approved by voters, lawmakers have passed the rules which will allow wagers to be places through betting sites, mobile apps, and kiosks in parishes where the activity was approved.
