The numbers are in… and they are staggering, as US Tribal Gaming operators netted $34.6 billion in 2019. Those numbers were reported by the National Indian Gaming Commission and mark a 2.5% jump in revenue.
That total was derived from over 500 independent financial statements submitted to the Commission by 245 federally recognized tribes across 29 states.
The Commission Chairman said that revenue for 2020 could be in jeopardy, however, due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The reports for 2019 profits were recorded well before the forced closures of commercial and tribal casino operations this year.
