PHOENIX — The Arizona Department of Gaming says contributions to the state from tribal gambling revenue will be about $25.2 million for the quarter that ended on March 31.
That's about 4.7 percent more than the same quarter in 2014.
Department of Gaming director Dan Bergin says the increase for the third consecutive quarter is welcome news for state programs that get funding from the tribal money.
He says about $12.6 million will go toward the state's Instructional Improvement Fund for education.
Bergin says some $6.3 million is going into the Trauma and Emergency Services Fund and about $2 million going toward Arizona Department of Gaming operating costs.
Fifteen tribes currently operate 23 casinos in Arizona.
