2016 was a decent year for poker in Nevada as it was reported that $117.8 had been raked in state poker rooms during last year.

Those numbers, while substantial, remained unchanged from the previous year.

At the height of the poker boom, supplemented by the growing popularity in online poker, revenue from the game reached a high of $168 million in 2007.

January: $9.5 million (2.85 percent decrease)

February: $8.98 million (5.44 percent increase)
