Tribal gambling down again in Arizona

4 August 2016

Tribal gambling revenues in Arizona have fallen for the second consecutive quarter, according to figures released by the US state’s Department of Gaming.

In the three months to the end of June, contributions to the state from tribal gambling were down 3% year-on-year to around $25 million (€22.5 million).

Tribal gambling in Arizona also fell in the first three months of 2016 following six consecutive quarters of growth.

The 23 Class III casinos in Arizona contribute 1% to 8% of gross gambling revenue to the state, cities, towns and counties.

Department of Gaming director Daniel Bergin said: “While we have seen a small change in gaming revenue, the numbers still showcase how well the gaming industry is doing around Arizona and the high consumer confidence people have while living and playing in our state.”
