LAS VEGAS (AP) -- State officials say Nevada gambling revenue was up less than 1 percent in July compared with the same month last year.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board reported Thursday that the state's casinos brought in $932 million last month. Las Vegas Strip gambling revenue was up 5 percent to $563 million, while downtown Las Vegas revenue was down 3 percent to $38 million.

Reno casino revenue was down 2 percent in July to $48 million, and South Lake Tahoe gambling revenue dove 23 percent to $25 million.

Nevada officials collected $52 million in taxes on the July winnings. That's down almost 15 percent over last year.
