Slot machines accounted for a majority of gaming revenue on the Las Vegas Strip last year for the first time in nearly a decade and have since further increased their share in the year-to-date, with baccarat volumes sinking amid an ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China.

According to data published by the Nevada Gambling Control Board for the year-to-date, slot win on the Las Vegas Strip grew 2.6 percent year-on-year to $1.11bn in the first four months of 2019, broadly in line with full-year gains of 2.8 percent in 2018 and 3 percent in 2017.

Trailing 12-month slot win on the Strip settled at $3.34bn at the end of April, up 3.1 percent on the preceding full-year period in continuation of the segment’s run of low-to-mid-single-digit growth since Summer 2015.
