New Study: Casino Industry is Essential to Small Business Growth

The American Gaming Association released a new study, authored by Spectrum Gaming Group, that quantifies the gaming industry’s impact on small business growth. Key findings include:

  • Casinos are responsible for $52 billion in annual small business revenues across real estate, finance, health care, STEM, manufacturing, information technology and other industries;
  • Casinos support roughly 350,000 small business jobs;
  • Casinos support $13 billion in small business employee wages;
  • More than half of casino industry-supported jobs are at non-gaming businesses such as local restaurants and shops that see an increase in traffic from a casino property
