Class Exercise

With the difference between Class II and Class III slot machines blurring, tribal casinos are opting to buy more Class II games. In many states, like Oklahoma and California, the compact between the tribe and the state limits the number of Class III machines any casino can offer. But by adding Class II machines, the tribes can increase choices for their customers without violating the numbers of Class III machines permitted under the compact.

This chart is part of the latest definitive guide to tribal gaming, the 2018 issue of Casino City’s Indian Gaming Industry Report. The report covers all issues related to Indian gaming, including gaming and non-gaming revenue; number of facilities, tribes, gaming machines and table games; market summaries; trends; and revenue sharing with state and local governments.
