Record casino revenue comes despite slowdown at end of fiscal year

Iowa casinos reported $1.7 billion in gross revenue for casino games and slots in the fiscal year that just ended. The industry had a lot of success at the beginning of the year. Things slowed down in second part of fiscal and the last quarter. Nebraska casinos are ramping up their operations.   It will be interesting to monitor how the Nebraska gambling will affect western Iowa casinos. It appears that Nebraska will have temporary facilities open up relatively soon. They will also be more competitive. There is a problem of finding enough staff. Iowa is trying to counteract that problem.

The next step would be to legalize online poker. Online poker has a large illicit market and a burgeoning legal one in a few other states. In 2003 Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker Main Event from a $39 online tournament. There are 47 legal poker tables in the Iowa, spread out among five casinos. There were 112 poker rooms in 2011. Poker's popularity is owed in large part to online gambling. It's also due to the poker boom of the early 2000s.
