LAS VEGAS — State officials say Nevada gambling revenue fell 6 percent in September from the same time last year.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Tuesday that casinos brought in $902 million last month.

Las Vegas Strip gambling revenues were down 12 percent to $495 million, while downtown revenues were down 4 percent to $43 million.

Reno casinos won $48 million in September, which is down about 2 percent year-over-year. South Lake Tahoe gambling revenues of $24 million bucked the trend and were up 7 percent over last year.

Gambling revenues in the first three months of the fiscal year are down 3 percent over the same period in 2013.

Nevada collected $66 million in taxes based on the September winnings, which is up about 5 percent from last year.
