LAS VEGAS (AP) — Casinos in Nevada reported flat winnings in October, marking another sluggish month in a key index of statewide fiscal health.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board said Tuesday that casino house winnings of almost $823 million statewide were down 19.5% compared with the same month a year ago, when casinos on a hot streak reported winning more than $1 billion.

Board analyst Michael Lawton noted that house winnings on table games were the best since operations resumed in June. For the calendar year, the casino win index is down statewide more than 36% and the Las Vegas Strip is down 43.6%.
