State of Play

State of Play

The American Gaming Association recently added a new tool in conjunction with its June release of the annual State of the States report, in which the association provides data for gaming in every U.S. state, the regulations, the number of properties, types of gaming and more. In the new “State of Play” section on the AGA website (, users can now click on individual states and the information about the impact of gaming on that particular state will come up. Visitors can also download an “Economic Fact Sheet” about each state, which, for the first time, includes tribal gaming. According to AGA President and CEO Bill Miller, this is important because it gives a total view of gaming impact no matter who owns the casinos, and because often the perspective of the customers doesn’t distinguish between commercial and tribal. At right is the fact sheet on Minnesota, which offers only tribal gaming.
