Regional tribal casinos make more than $1 billion in FY 2004

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- New figures show tribal casinos in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas made $1.25-billion from gamblers during fiscal year 2004.

According to the National Indian Gaming Commission, Indian gaming nationally produced $19.4-billion in revenue during the period, an increase of $2.58-billion, or 15.3 percent from 2003.

The region that includes Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas saw in increase of 44 percent or more than the $867-million the region reported in fiscal 2003.

Federal regulators release financial numbers only by region instead of state-by-state.

But commission spokesman Shawn Pensoneau said it's fair to say that Oklahoma accounted for the most of the three-state region's revenue growth.

Of the region's 84 tribal gaming operations, 78 are in Oklahoma.
