"Good Luck, & Win Big~!"

It's back to mundane work today, for Mr. and Mrs. Malcontent.

Tribal Casinos are a Win-Win situation, all the way round in the Sooner State, including at least 37,000 jobs~!  Oklahoma took the risk, took the gamble if you prefer, in the 1990s and won big!!

Alas, all I do is visit NDN casinos all day, 4-1/2 days a week~!
oh, dang,  somebody's gotta do it...

**Lovingly lifted from Indianz(dot)com:

Tribal gaming contributed $6.3 billion to Oklahoma's economy in 2014, according to a new study commissioned by the Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association. (my next career ambition is this)

Tribes put 23,000 people to work at their casinos, the study said. Of those, about 60 percent were non-Indians. Women accounted for 54 percent overall, The Tulsa World reported.
I get asked all the time how many of these employees are tribal citizens and how many are non-citizens," Kyle Dean, the author of the study, told the paper.

Tribal gaming also indirectly supported another 14,000 jobs throughout the state, according to the study. 

Wages for all of the directly and indirectly supported jobs totaled $1.8 billion. 

Oklahoma is home to more gaming facilities than any other state. The region saw the largest growth rate in 2014, the National Indian Gaming Commission reported last week.
