The Arizona Supreme Court has denied a request to prevent the state of Arizona from signing casino agreements with 17 tribes as a federal judge cleared the way for the deals to be approved.

Gov. Jane Hull (R) plans to finalize the agreements, which allow expansion of existing gaming. Tribes can offer new slot machines and house-banked blackjack. They must also share revenues with the state and raise the minimum gambling age to 21.
