Tribal casinos continue growth in 2007

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal regulators report that revenue at the nation's Indian casinos grew 5% in 2007. That's slower than in years past but still enough to outpace the 1.8% growth rate at Nevada casinos amid a sluggish economy.

Figures from the National Indian Gaming Commission, obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, show that Indian casinos took in $26 billion in gambling revenue in 2007, up from $25.1 billion in 2006.

Nevada casinos took in $12.85 billion in gambling revenues last year.
