TULSA In a recent gaming industry report Oklahoma ranked third in 2007 revenues amongst 28 tribal gambling states. With revenues of $2.5 billion, Oklahoma ranked behind California and Connecticut respectively.

Indian gaming grew 5% nationwide last year. However, Oklahoma was one of only 8 states that saw double-digit growth. Oklahoma is "the fastest growing large Indian gaming revenue state," said Alan Meister, an economist who conducted the report for Casino City.

"Usually, California has been the main driving force for growth. But with very low growth this year, it's not contributing what it has in the past. It's not so much Indian gambling is better in Oklahoma as California is not doing what it has in the past," Meister said.

In 2007 Oklahoma had 31 tribes operating 101 gambling facilities. That was an increase of five facilities over 2006. The report said the number of gambling machines in Oklahoma increased 11.7% in 2007.
