"Betting is pretty much like liquor: you can make it illegal, but you can't make it unpopular."
I read a lot of numbers and data in my day job, trying to understand the lay of the land.
So it's pretty cool to see the numbers behind the casinos in Nevada, and how they earn their massive stacks of cash.
Here's how much money Nevada casinos (all non-restricted locations) won in calendar year 2007 along with the numbers of games statewide:
Slot Machines - 174,677 units - $8.5 billion
Table Games - 5,801 units - $4.2 billion
Poker tables - 907 tables - $168.0 million
If you want to see the breakdown by table game, go read this short and easy-to-read one pager on the numbers from the fine folks at UNLV: 2007 Statewide Nevada Casino Gaming Wins
