LAS VEGAS - (Associated Press) - The tourism agency in charge of promoting Las Vegas says Sin City saw a small increase in visitors in April compared with the same month last year.

But the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority said Wednesday that the nearly 3.2 million visitors spent less money gambling.

Gambling revenue in Clark County was down 6.1 percent to nearly $690 million. The Las Vegas Strip saw a decrease in gambling revenue of less than 1 percent, to $437 million.

The agency says that average nightly room rates were up 3 percent despite the addition of 8,000 hotel rooms from last year. Convention attendance was also up 2.9 percent.

Officials say 12.2 million visitors have come to southern Nevada so far this year, up 1.3 percent compared with last year.
