America’s Economic Impact Of Gambling

CBS Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A new study shows U.S. casinos had a $240 billion economic impact and employed 1.7 million people in 2013.

The American Gaming Association announced the results of the economic study at a news conference Tuesday. The group’s annual G2E Global Gaming Expo kicked off this week at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.

Oxford Economics studied the industry’s impact and included spending and revenue that might be linked but not directly connected to a casino. An example is a traveler who visits an area for a casino but also spends at a nearby gas station.

G2E is a trade show and conference where new slot machine designs, wagering technology and food and beverage concepts often debut.
