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.
