CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada gambling revenues are down 2.6 percent in October compared with a year earlier.

Officials from the Nevada Gaming Control Board say Wednesday that the state's casinos brought in $954 million last month.

Las Vegas Strip winnings of $551 million were down 5 percent from the same month last year, while downtown Las Vegas revenues of $47 million were down 3 percent.

Reno casinos saw their winnings drop 1 percent to $43 million. South Lake Tahoe saw revenue fall 23 percent to $12 million in October.

The state collected $61 million in taxes based on October gambling winnings. That's an 11.9 percent increase from the same month last year.

If Nevada would allow Casino's (and only Casino's) to sell Lotto Tickets and take a 5% immediate fee for the sale, that 5% as well as the increase in traffic in to the Casino's to purchase the Lotto Tickets would result in increased revenue since those of us who now drive across the State Line to purchase the Lotto Tickets would drop $20 or more in to a Slot Machine when we were there to purchase the Lotto Tickets. LOTTO!!!
