The nearby Silver state enjoyed healthy gambling activity during the month of March. Casinos along the Colorado River in Laughlin reported a gaming win of $50.2-million, up 3.75% from March of 2016.

More than $991-million worth of gaming win was reported statewide in March, up 7.5% from the same month last year.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board said a lot of the gaming uptick is directly related to NCAA basketball tournament wagering in casino sports books.
