The tourism agency that promotes Las Vegas says the destination welcomed more visitors in June than the same month last year but took in less gambling revenue.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority said Thursday that 3.1 million people visited the city in June. That's up 4.3 percent compared with the same month last year.
A total of 18.5 million visitors have come to Las Vegas during the first six months this year. That's up 1.9 percent compared with the first half of last year.
But gambling revenue was down 6.9 percent for Clark County in June. It dropped more sharply on the Las Vegas Strip and downtown.
The agency says 82.1 percent of the city's hotel rooms were occupied in June. The average nightly cost was up 6 percent to nearly $90.
