CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada state gambling revenues are continuing a slight upward trend, with officials reporting that casinos won almost 2 percent more in October compared with the same month a year ago.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Friday that casinos won about $961 million for the month, and the state collected a little more than $54 million based on that amount.

The state percentage fee was up almost 17 percent from the previous year.

Las Vegas Strip casinos reaped about $581 million, up 3.6 percent in October. Downtown casinos won just under 1 percent.

Reno casino revenues of $42.6 million were down almost 7 percent, while South Lake Tahoe's $15.8 million was up a little under 1 percent.
