August Numbers look good for Strip

Gaming win on the Las Vegas Strip was up 21.09% in August 2010 compared to August of last year.

Baccarat continues to carry the load for the Strip. Amazingly the amount that Strip casinos won on Baccarat was more than all of the other table games combined. It looks like the super high rollers were back on the Strip in August. If these numbers for Baccarat continue for the foreseeable future that would be a huge boost for the high-end hotels on the Strip.

Downtown numbers weren't as good however, as they were down 1.41% year over year.

It looks like things are improving in Las Vegas, especially on the Strip. Gaming numbers are improving and room rates seem to be creeping up.
