Average Las Vegas Visitor Spent More In 2014, But Not On Gambling


Las Vegas Strip

Tourists are spending more money in Las Vegas, but not on gambling.

Las Vegas visitors spend more money, a new report commissioned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority suggests.

The LVCVA reports a record number of visitors – 41 million came to the city last year. The agency estimated, on average, those visitors spent $723 each, which shows a $33 jump compared to 2013. Visitors continue to spend less on gambling, while entertainment, rooms and restaurants are the main draws.
