More Than Vegas?

Man, we never realized it was this huge. AP (07.11.06):
"Tribal casinos pulled in $22.6 billion in gambling revenue last year, double the take of Nevada gambling, as Indian casinos recorded another record year, the industry trade group reported Tuesday. The revenue was a 15 percent increase from the $19.6 billion Indian gambling reaped in 2004, according to the National Indian Gaming Association." Casinos Bank Another Record Revenue Year
Vegas did "$11.6 billion from gambling in 2005". If you add in "other entertainment like hotels, restaurants and shows for about half their revenue", it took in over $20 billion for 2005. Which is still less than what the Tribes pulled in on gambling alone. Puts this in a whole new light.
