by Lou on May 10, 2007

According to an American Gaming Association (AGA) study, gambling’s growth continues to generate tourism revenues, with US casinos revenues growing 6.8% to a record $32.4 billion last year.

The biggest gambling states based on casino revenue were Nevada at $12.6 billion, New Jersey at $5.2 billion, Indiana at $2.6 billion, Mississippi at $2.6 billion, Louisiana at $2.6 billion, and Illinois at $1.9 billion.

Poker continued to grow in Nevada and New Jersey, though a slowdown in the growth rate was noted.

Gaming revenue exceeds $500 billion a year in the United States and the number of casino-bound Americans has doubled in the past five years.
