Tribal Casino Gambling Revenue Up By 4.8%

Via stltoday.com

PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Department of Gaming says contributions to the state from tribal gambling revenue will be more than $26 million for the quarter that ended on June 30.

That’s a 4.8 percent increase when compared with the same quarter in the 2016 fiscal year.

Department of Gaming director Daniel Bergin said Tuesday that after a few down quarters, this is a positive start to the new fiscal year.

More than $13 million will go to Arizona’s Instructional Improvement Fund for education with more than $6.5 million going to support trauma and emergency services.

Other funding is used for the department’s operating costs, state tourism and wildlife conservation.

Tribes with Class III casinos contribute 1 percent to 8 percent of gross gambling revenue to the state, cities, towns and counties.
