The figure was a 40.3 percent yearly increase, despite drop levels falling by 3.3 percent year-on-year.

Baccarat levels also increased, with revenue up 70.3 percent yearly and volumes overall improving by 21.6 percent.

Total table revenue (excluding poker) was up nearly 50 percent, topping $392.8 million, just shy of the slots revenue – with Las Vegas strip revenue reaching $405.1 million, up 7.3 percent yearly.
