Casino lovers and companies such as Sightline Payments LLC with Kirk Sanford would most probably be relieved to hear that the casino industry in Las Vegas seems to be recovering from its two-year collapse. In September, gambling revenue on the Strip rose by 2.8%; last year revenue was at $506.4 million, and this year it climbed to $520.6 million. The Nevada Gaming Control Board said casino income increased 4.3% in the first nine months of the year.
Steve Wynn, the CEO of Wynn Resorts explained last week that “We’ve seen the bottom in Las Vegas. I don’t know how fast it’s going to get better, but I don’t think it’s going to get any worse.” This was indeed apparent in quarterly results which were posted by Wynn Resort, Las Vegas Sands Corp and MGM Resorts International, three of the top gambling groups in Las Vegas.
