Tribal casinos' payments to Arizona increasing

State regulators say business is improving in tribal casinos in Arizona.

The Gaming Department says tribal payments to the state from gambling revenue will total $12.7 million for the final three months of 2011.

That's a 12 percent increase above the same quarter a year earlier.

Gaming Director Mark Brnovich says it's the second consecutive quarter of increased payments to the state.
