  • Bets are off: Indian casinos suffer in bad economy

    Fresno, California (AP)

    While Indian casinos don’t have to report their revenue, gamblers say they are visiting less frequently – and wagering less.

    Some gamblers who would have traveled to Nevada are wagering closer to home, casino operators say, but not enough to offset the smaller amounts of money they are spending. Fresnans Donna and Chuck Henderson, who used to gamble every other day, say they now visit twice a month and stick to penny slots.
