The Pandemic Forced Casinos to Shut Down

  • The COVID-19 pandemic shuttered every U.S. casino in March 2020, preventing an estimated 616,000 casino gaming employees from being able to work.

  • The subsequent two-month shutdown of the gaming industry led to $105 billion in lost economic activity and cost states more than $2 billion in lost gaming taxes alone, directly impacting 564 gaming communities across the country.


The Industry Must Be Ready

  • Clark County, home to the Las Vegas Strip, 173 casinos that met the $1 million threshold reported a combined net loss of $742.5 million in the 12-month period ending June 2021.

  • Casino hotels had the largest decrease among all private industries, losing an average of 263 jobs per establishment.

By the end of 2020, U.S commercial casinos saw a 31% decline in revenue from 2019.

Preparation For The Next Outbreak

  • A sustained shutdown of MGM Resorts properties in the wake of COVID-19 contributed to a second quarter operating loss of $1 billion.

  • Caesars Entertainment Inc. is putting its losses in 2020 at more than $2 billion.

These numbers show the economic realities of Covid-19 and underscore the importance of targeted federal relief and ramped-up vaccine distribution to accelerate gaming's recovery in 2021."
