Arizona Tribal Casinos Report Record $111 Million In 2019

The Arizona Department of Gaming is reporting a record-setting total in tribal gaming contributions in fiscal year 2019.

Officials say tribal gaming contributions hit an all-time high of $111.3 million. They say that's the highest total since the Arizona Tribal-State Gaming Compacts became effective in 2003.

The record amount represents a 4.2 % increase compared with fiscal year 2018.

State Department of Gaming Director Ted Vogt said cumulative tribal gaming contributions under the Arizona Tribal-State Gaming Compacts have surpassed $1.51 billion in funding to support education, tourism, wildlife conservation, health services and local government priorities.
