Viva Las Vegas Gambling Statistics

0707Gambling.jpgI’m not much of a gambler, but I just had to share this wealth of statistics on gambling assembled by the University of Las Vegas’ Center for Gaming Research. They have annual numbers for Las Vegas back to 1967, and for Atlantic City since gambling started in 1978.

I enjoyed looking at the 2006 Nevada Gaming Win Breakdown (PDF). No surprise that slots are by far the most prevalent and lucrative game (for the casinos) but who would’ve thought that Keno had one of the best win percentages (27.63%)?
