Oneida Nation shares $27M in gaming revenue with community

Photo from Facebook The Oneida Nation of New York shared more than $27 million in gaming revenues this year, The Auburn Citizen reports.

Based on data from Open Book New York, the paper calculated all of the payments the tribe has made to 10 counties. The total came to $27,668,177.60.

That amount represents a 12.6 percent increase than the $24,572,638.16 shared in 2015. That indicates that business at the tribe's two gaming facilities has improved because the payments are taken from a share of slot machine revenues. The tribe shares 25 percent with the state, which then distributes the money to the counties, as part of a 2013 settlement.

The tribe operates the Turning Stone Resort Casino and the Yellow Brick Road Casino.
