Tribal Gaming Conference Underway in Tulsa


The Tulsa Convention Center looks like a casino this week as the Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association holds its annual conference and trade show in Tulsa.

Association Director Shelia Morago says gaming has a big impact on Oklahoma’s economy. She says tribal gaming was up 6.5% in Oklahoma last year. It has a $4.2 billion impact on the state's economy.

Over 2,000 people are in Tulsa for the event. In addition, to showing off the latest machines, the conference included workshops to address problem gambling.
