Nevada gambling revenues rose more than 6.1 percent in April, to $855.7 million, compared with the same month last year, the state Gaming Control Board announced Tuesday.
The single-digit increase was a return to the plus side after a 10.8 percent decline in March.
The state posted revenue increases of 5.7 percent in February and 18.4 percent in January, according to figures compiled by Nevada gaming regulators.
Analysts described the results as mixed, with high-end games returning strong results while table games and slots that appeal to a mass market were down for the month.
