CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Indian casinos in Wyoming were among the fastest-growing in 2012 even as overall spending by gamblers at Indian casinos fell nationwide that year.

Wyoming’s two resident Indian tribes, the Northern Arapaho and the Eastern Shoshone, both operate casinos.

The Casino City’s Indian Gaming Industry Report released Wednesday states Indian casinos in Wyoming were second behind only those in Texas in the rate of increase in the number of table games in 2012. The Wyoming casinos increased from 14 table games to 17 in 2012.

The report doesn’t give revenue figures for Indian casinos in Wyoming. But it states that casinos in the state experienced 4.3-percent growth in 2012. Nationwide, revenue growth at Indian casinos slowed to 2 percent, to $28.1 billion, down from 3.4 percent in the previous year.
