Oklahoma Indian casinos boost state revenues

August 23, 2008

OKLAHOMA State revenues from Oklahoma's 91 Indian gaming centers jumped 74% in fiscal 2008, which ended June 30th. The state received $81.4 million up from $46.8 million the previous year. Casino pay the state 4-6 percent of revenues from electronic games and 10% of revenues from table games.

Derek Campbell of the Office of State Finance attributed the increased revenues to more new games. He does not think the number of gamblers increased or the visitors are spending more money. "The biggest reason is they've put in a lot more compacted games," he said. "Mostly it's just an increase in the number of games."
