CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada casinos won $982 million from gamblers in March, an increase of 7.6 percent from the same month a year ago.

A report Tuesday from the state Gaming Control Board shows gambling revenue on the Las Vegas Strip totaled nearly $561 million, up nearly 11 percent. Casinos in downtown Las Vegas took in $51.2 million, posting a 12 percent jump.

The casino win was mostly down in northern Nevada, with South Lake Tahoe being the exception. Clubs on the scenic lake report nearly $15 million in gambling revenue in March, a 32 percent increase over the same month in 2013.

Gambling revenue in Reno and Washoe County fell nearly 11 percent.

Taxes collected on the statewide revenue amounted to $84 million, up 7.4 percent.
