Native American gaming casinos in Idaho didn't enjoy the same increases in revenues during 2011 as most of the rest of tribal casinos in the United States.
In fact, a new analysis—Casino City's Indian Gaming Industry Report—out this morning indicates that Idaho saw the fifth steepest revenue decline in 2011, only coming ahead of Connecticut, North Dakota, Oregon and New York.
The top five states—Washington, Florida, Connecticut, California and Oklahoma—accounted for approximately 61 percent of total gambling revenue at Native American casinos during 2011.
Ironically, analysts in the report said the nation's weak economy helped spur casino growth in many states.
Overall, national revenues at tribal casinos rose 3 percent, to $27.4 billion.
