Indian-Owned Casinos Show Increasing Revenues

By Alabama News Network

A new national report shows gambling in Alabama is growing by record numbers, but only in Indian-owned casinos.

According to Casino City's North American Gaming Almanac, total gambling revenue grew by 25 percent in 2011. That's the biggest increase in the nation. Most of that percentage was from casinos owned by the Poarch Creek Indians.

Experts say those casinos have benefited from the state's shutdown of non-Indian gambling sites. The sites still left have seen decreasing revenues. 
 
Revenue at Alabama's dog tracks fell by a little over two percent in 2011. Only two of the four tracks still open offer live racing.
