Gaming is big business in the United States. Eleven states permit commercial gaming and 28 states allow American Indian casinos, a number that seems to grow monthly. A study released by the Analysis Group said Indian gaming was a $19-billion-a-year business in 2004 when more than 225 tribes ran 405 gaming facilities. Ohio is being bombarded by opportunities to become an American Indian casino state. Led by the Eastern Shawnee Tribe, Indian tribes are trying to find a home for casinos in many Ohio communities. Many casinos have hotel components in their complexes. The trend in American Indian casinos is for them to rival commercial casinos in terms of offering a resort experience, complete with lodging, retail and dining.
