Indian gambling in the US is said to be growing much faster than Las Vegas. It has been reported than gross revenues in 2006 totaled $25 billion – that is 11% percent more than in the year of 2005.
According to the law passed by Congress in 1988, Indian tribes were allowed to run slot machines and other games like video poker, bingo, etc. As a result there are 415 Indian gambling facilities that operate there.
In spite of the fact that tribal gambling is relatively young, it proves to be a success.
