Nevada Casinos – Best Places to Gamble in NV
Updated February, 2022
Although the vast majority of both casinos and gaming revenue are found in Las Vegas and its surrounding suburbs, the rest of Nevada has its share of casinos spread out across the state.
According to the Nevada Gaming Control Board, there are, (as of January 1, 2022), 433 casinos in the state of Nevada (including Las Vegas).
This is a big increase from the 334 casinos in the state just a few years ago (2017). All total, Nevada casinos brought in a record $13.4 billion dollars in gaming revenue in 2021. This represents a whooping 70% jump in revenue from 2020, when Covid shut down casinos for a time.

Definition of a casino
These 433 casinos in the state of Nevada are what’s called “nonrestriced locations. The Gaming Control Board defines these non-restricted casinos as businesses with table games and/or more than 15 slot or video poker machines. In other words, a gas station with two video poker machines does not count as a casino in our tally.
Nevada has four main casino areas, Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe and Laughlin, along, with several other, smaller gaming towns, such as Mesquite, Primm, Carson City, Wendover, and a few other smaller towns making up the difference.
The state gaming control board doesn’t break down the number of casinos by town. Instead, they sort all of the Nevada casinos into several different reporting areas. Here’s a breakdown of the number of casinos in Nevada:
Clark County, Nevada Gaming Revenue
Home to Las Vegas, Clark County carries most of the weight when it comes to the state of Nevada’s casino gaming revenue. With over 8,000 square miles of land, this large county is not only home to the casinos in Las Vegas and surrounding suburbs, but also includes the gambling towns of Mesquite, Laughlin, and Primm.
(Related: How Many Casinos are on the Las Vegas Strip?)
Of the state of Nevada’s $13.4 billion in casino gaming revenue in 2021, $11.4 billion of that, or 85%, came from Clark County.
Number of Casinos in Clark County, Nevada
There are 228 casinos in Clark County, broken down as follows:
- Downtown Las Vegas (including Fremont Street Casinos): 23 casinos
- Las Vegas Strip – 60
- North Las Vegas – 17
- Laughlin -17
- Boulder Strip – 43
- Mesquite – 9
- Other – 59
Washoe County Casinos
In terms of number of casinos, Washoe County is Nevada’s second biggest gambling center, with 64 different casinos. There are 23 licensed casinos in Reno, itself, the gambling center of Washoe County. The county’s total of 58 is broken down as follows:
- Reno: 28 casinos
- Sparks: 14
- North Shore of Lake Tahoe: 8
- Other areas of the county: 14
Casinos in Washoe, Nevada had just over a billion dollars in gaming revenue in 2021 – $1.015 billion to be specific. This was up 50% from pandemic-ravaged 2020, but even up huge from the region’s $857 million in gaming revenue in 2019.
Either way, Washoe County accounts for roughly 7.5% of all of the gaming revenue in the state.
Interestingly enough the north shore and south shores of Lake Tahoe are in two different counties, in different casino reporting areas. However the south shore has 8 casinos as well.
This small county (population wise) on the western part of the state is home to 13 casinos. All of these are in Fallon, including the Fallon Nugget, Stockman’s Casino, Bonanza Casino, and Churchill Springs.
There are just seven casinos here, all in the South Shore of Lake Tahoe, or as they call it, “Tahoe South.”
These seven casinos include the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Harrah’s, Harvey’s, and MontBleu. The long-running Lakeside Inn and Casino, however, closed in 2020.
The south shore Lake Tahoe casinos had $250 million in gambling revenue in 2021, per the Nevada Gaming Control Commission. Up 37% from 2020 and up from the $225 million South Lake Tahoe saw in 2019.
Twice the land size of spacious Clark County, Elko County is rural and pretty empty. It occupies the north east corner of the state, and borders both Utah and Idaho.
Of the 38 casinos in Elko county, six of the casinos are in Elko.
There are also eight casinos in Wendover, Nevada (near the Utah border), along with 22 others in various parts of county, including Jackpot near the Idaho border.
In all, Elko County casinos brought in $371 million in gambling revenue in 2021. Up 54% from 2020 and even up 19% from the $312 million Elko netted in 2019.
Carson Valley Casinos
This area is in Douglas County, where the south shore of Lake Tahoe is, but does not include Lake Tahoe casinos. It mostly includes casinos and gaming licenses in Nevada’s state capitol, Carson City.
The Carson Valley area is home to 29 casinos. These include the Casino Fandango, Bodines Casino, Carson Valley Inn Casino, Gold Dust West Carson City, and the Carson Nugget.
The Carson Valley casino market netted $134 million in gaming win in 2021, up from the $89 million revenue in 2020.
White Pine County Casinos
On the eastern size, with about the same land size of Clark County, White Pine County has just about 10,000 residents, or roughly the number of people in the MGM Grand at any given time.
There are seven casinos in this county, including one I played at in Ely, the Hotel Nevada & Gambling Hall, where they opened up a blackjack table for me, since I was the only person in the casino.
Still, White Pine County brought in $11.8 million in gaming revenue in 2021, up from the $7.3 million in 2020 and from the area’s $8.7 million in 2019.
Humboldt County Casinos
Seventeen casinos call this area of northwest Nevada home, most of which are found in the town of Winnemucca – a popular stop when driving the seemingly endless flat miles of Nevada’s Interstate 80.
These are all smaller casinos, including Pete’s Gambling Hall, Winnemucca Inn & Casino, and the Winners Inn. There are just over 1,000 slot machines in the entire county.
Nevertheless, these casinos brought in just over $26.8 million in gambling revenue in 2021, up from the $17 million in gambling revenue in 2020 and up from the $20.4 million in 2019.
Lyon County Casinos
Although it has 29 gambling locations, (including the Pioneer Crossing Casino and the Silverado in Fernley), this area is known more for scoring of a different kind.
The county is home to legal brothels. As for the casinos, Lyon County has just over 2,400 slot machines in the county. All total, Lyon County’s 29 casinos had 2021 gambling revenues of $66 million, compared to 2020’s revenue count of $44 million.
Nye County Casinos
The largest county in Nevada, (and the 3rd largest in the United States in terms of land), the infamous Nye County from “Live PD” fame has 18 casinos, most of which are in Pahrump, including the Gold Town Casino and Pahrump Nugget.
These 18 casinos combine to generate just over $70 million dollars in gaming revenue in 2021.
In case you are counting, we are a few casinos off of our 433 tally of casinos in Nevada. The remaining ones are very smaller joints spread out across rural areas in the state.
