Nevada sports books lose $6.6 million. Blame Stanley Cup win by Vegas' NHL team

Jul 29, 2023

The Vegas Golden Knights won their first Stanley Cup last month.

As a result, Nevada's sports books lost.

And lost big.

According to the Nevada Gaming Control Board, state sports books lost a staggering $6.6 million on hockey wagers in June — the largest monthly loss in hockey since the state started tracking that category in January 2020.

"Yeah, that's a significant loss for a sports betting category, definitely," Michael Lawton, senior economic analyst for the Nevada Gaming Control Board, told The Times Friday.
