State authorities say revenue from tribal casinos in Arizona are holding steady. The Arizona Department of Gaming reported Wednesday that the tribes' payments to the state will be about $23.9 million for the quarter that ended September 30th. Gaming officials say that total is within a few thousand dollars of matching the same quarter of a year ago. Money from the payments will be distributed to various special funds – including ones for education, emergency services, tourism, and gambling prevention. The 23 tribal casinos in Arizona pay the state between one and eight-percent of their gross revenue from certain types of gambling, such as slot machines and card games.
