Record $111M Arizona tribal gaming contributions in 2019
PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Department of Gaming is reporting a record-setting total in tribal gaming contributions in fiscal year 2019.
Department 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 percent increase compared with fiscal year 2018.
State Department of Gaming Director Ted Vogt says 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.
