GAMBLINGLaughlin casinos enjoyed a nice uptick in casino gaming revenue during the first month of this year. The Nevada Gaming Control Board reports that properties along the Colorado River logged a gaming take of $42.4-million in January, up 6.9% from the same month last year.

Partly bogged down by a decline on the Las Vegas Strip, Nevada’s statewide gaming revenue was down nearly 3% from January, 2015.
