Arizona sees rise in revenues from tribal casinos

Arizona has seen its revenue from tribal casinos rise for the third straight quarter.

The Arizona Department of Gaming reports that tribes’ payments to the state will be $22.6 million for the quarter ending on March 31.

That’s a 6 percent increase from the same quarter a year ago.

Money from the payments will be distributed to various special funds including ones for education, emergency services, tourism and gambling prevention.

The 22 tribal casinos in Arizona pay the state between 1 and 8 percent of their gross revenue from certain types of gambling, such as slot machines and card games.
