Today, there are over 500 commercial casinos, as well as card rooms, racinos and race tracks spread throughout the United States, as well as almost 500 Indian casinos operated by approximately 240 tribes, together generating approximately $70 billion in revenue annually. Recently, state legislators have recognized that legalized gambling provides an avenue for significant revenue generation for state and local government as well as increased capital investment and employment opportunities. Gaming Law & Practice addresses the framework of legalized gambling in the United States today, with specific chapters on Nevada and Michigan which offer differing approaches to the regulation of gaming.
