There are actually 11 casinos reported in the abstract, but one license is just Edgewater Hotel & Casino - Race & Sports and the Regency Casino in Laughlin has only 75 slot machines and no hotel rooms, so averaging was done over 9 resorts. The Avi Resort & Casino is not included in the report because it is a Native American casino and its operation is not governed by the Nevada Gaming Commission.
