  • Nevada economy is rebounding slowly, economists say
    Economists at a meeting sponsored by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, at the M Resort in Henderson, Nev., on Monday said the state's economy is slowly improving. "We're still a long ways away from where we were in 2007, but we're improving. Our growth is slower than the rest of the nation but, of course, we're recovering from a lot steeper losses," said Stephen Brown, director of UNLV's Center for Business and Economic Research.

  • Atlantic City reports November gaming revenue of $176.6 million
    Atlantic City's Division of Gaming Enforcement released figures Monday showing that casinos in the city took in $176.6 million in gambling revenues in November. The gaming facilities, which were ordered to close for several days due to superstorm Sandy, reported lower revenues for the month. Revel CEO Kevin DeSanctis noted that the hurricane affected the city's feeder markets in North Jersey and New York. "Clearly, the visitation was impacted as those areas work to get their lives back to some type of normalcy. We are hopeful that as those areas recover, so will the visitation to Atlantic City," DeSanctis said. The Press of Atlantic City (N.J.) (12/11) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
