Oklahoma Indian gaming revenue grows by double digits

June 15, 2009

OKLAHOMA - The National Indian Gaming Commission issued its annual report on gross revenue from Indian gaming across the country. In 2008 the national revenue rose to $26.7 billion, a $500 million increase from the year before.
This is a 2.3 percent increase from 2007 and represents more than 400 casinos and bingo halls in 28 states run by Indian tribes.

Two regions showing the strongest growth are in Oklahoma, a state with 31
gaming tribes. The Tulsa region had an 18.2 percent rise in gaming revenue
to nearly $1.7 billion. That region is defined as eastern Oklahoma and Kansas.

The Oklahoma city region increased 17.6 percent to $1.3 billion. That region is defined as western Oklahoma and Texas,

According to the commission's report, Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas are home to
27 percent of the country's Indian gaming operations, but represent only 11 percent of Indian gaming revenue.

Commission Chairman Phil Hogen said in a news release, "We know that the economic downtown has impacted casino and bingo hall patrons. Reports from many tribal gaming facilities reflect that. We are often told that while patrons appear to be visiting tribal gaming facilities as often as in the past, they seem to spend less per visit than before."
