Tribal gaming revenues up 46 percent in state

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A new study finds Oklahoma tribal gaming centers are rolling in the money.

The Indian Gaming Industry Report finds that revenues from tribal gaming centers increased 46 percent to 939 (m) million dollars last year.

Economist Alan Meister ranked Oklahoma's growth rate fourth among 30 states with tribal gaming. In 2003, Oklahoma's gaming revenue grew by 39 percent to 642 (m) million dollars.

Meister says gaming is growing in Oklahoma through new facilities and expansion of existing ones.

The study found that non-gaming revenue -- including meals, hotel rooms and merchandise -- also increased sharply to 102-point-one (m) million dollars last year from 69-point-seven (m) million dollars in 2003.

Oklahoma's 85 tribal gaming centers are the most of any state.
