The nation’s commercial casinos won nearly $14 billion in the third quarter of this year, marking the industry’s best quarter ever, and pushing U.S. casino revenue past what it was for all of 2020, according to figures released Tuesday. The figures from the American Gaming Association, the casino industry’s national trade group, show U.S. casinos are poised to have their best year ever in 2021 as more consumers feel comfortable visiting casinos amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and as online and sports betting revenues continue to grow.
