5 November 2014

NEWTON, Mass. -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The 2014-2015 edition of Casino City’s North American Gaming Almanac and CD, released today by Casino City Press, reports that in 2012 gaming revenue in the U.S. increased by 4.53 percent, for a total of $94.47 billion.

The Almanac contains nearly 750 pages on the North American gaming market, including market profiles for each state and Canadian province and nearly 1,000 revenue charts and tables. Property rankings are also included, with top properties listed by type of gaming activity and property, and number of gaming positions, machines, table games, and hotel rooms.

Each gaming market profile includes a legislative overview, 2012 gaming revenue figures by type (commercial gaming, Indian gaming, lotteries, etc.), 2013 monthly total gaming revenue figures for several states, gaming property counts, machine and table game counts and distribution, gaming property profiles by type and by location, property owner profiles, and regulatory bodies.

“The North American Gaming Almanac is exceptionally helpful in obtaining a comprehensive view of the ever-changing gaming industry. The way the data is presented allows such versatility of use that financial analysts, gaming analysts, market research consultants, casino operators, industry suppliers, regulators, libraries, and universities have all found that the Almanac facilitates their endeavors,” says Michael Corfman, Casino City CEO. “Uses range from developing benchmarks to analyzing competitors and industry trends.”
