CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — State officials say Nevada gambling revenue was down 12.5 percent in January, while state collections went up that month.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reports casinos brought in $909 million in January.

The $507 million in winnings on the Las Vegas Strip were down nearly 19 percent in January, while downtown Las Vegas revenues of about $45 million were down 5 percent.

Casinos in Washoe County won nearly $53 million, which is down 2 percent from the same month a year ago.

The state collected $68 million in taxes based on the January revenue, which is up more than 18 percent year-over-year.
