    Nationwide Native American Gaming numbers

    Article here

    242 tribes - 494 gaming facilities - 28 states

    Gaming Revenue - $30 billion total
    Top 5 states:
    CA - $7.9 billion
    OK - $4.2 billion
    FL - $2.6 billion
    WA - $2.5 billion
    AZ - $1.9 billion

    The economist restrict these info to state by state only. Therefore, he was able to get confidential numbers from the casinos, who are very secretive about their finances.

    I'm surprised that CT didn't make the list, with two of the largest casinos in the nation, and between two rich metro area (NYC and Boston).

    I think for sure CT would make the top 10, and although Foxwoods & Mohegan are mega resorts there is nothing else just those two...
    Look at AZ #5 on the list, the city of Scottsdale has at least 6 (and probably more) NA casinos and that's just Scottsdale, I don't know how many other NA casinos are scattered throughout the state...

    4.2 Billion in Oklahoma, much of that Class II which they pay zilch to the state on which is getting a bigger portion of the floor every year at every casino here, and we wonder why our tax and general revenues are down, plus they paid less to the state last year than they did in previous years. I sincerely hope when 2020 gets here our legislators do a major rework on that compact.
