The Business That Operates the Slots at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas Said They’ve Made Over $1 Billion
LAS VEGAS – The company that runs the slot machines at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas said that the machines have made more than $1 billion in total.
A news release says that Michael Gaughan’s Airport Slot Concession, Inc. has been in charge of the slot machines at the Las Vegas airport for 36 years. The company runs 1,430 slot machines in the terminals of the airport and has 245 workers.
The news release says that the company “reached a major milestone” in 2022, when its airport contract brought in a total of $1 billion.
According to the news release, the machines have brought in about $39.8 million in gross revenue each year over the past few years, which is equal to an average of $34.4 million in direct revenue for the airport.
“Revenue from things other than aviation is helpful because it helps keep costs down for airlines. “Because travel is a choice, we work hard to keep our costs to the airlines stable and as low as we can,” said Scott Kichline, the Assistant Director for Business Commercial/Development at Harry Reid International Airport. “Regardless of money, Las Vegas is known for its casinos. Slots in the airport are a service that most travelers like and have come to expect. When people come to Only Vegas, the first thing they see and hear is slot machines. On their way out, many also enjoy the chance to try for one last jackpot.
According to the news release, the only two airports in the United States with slot machines are Harry Reid International and Reno-Tahoe International.
