Indian gaming comes in many forms in many states but has grown to become an economic powerhouse over the past decade, generating $12.7 billion in revenues for tribal governments.

A total of 28 states allow gaming, with 21 of them allowing Class III games such as slot machines, card games and related offerings. The rest allow Class II bingo and bingo-like games.

States are becoming more open to Indian gaming so long as they can share the wealth. Arizona voters are being asked this November to choose among three competing initiatives that affect 17 tribes and the racetrack industry.
