Milli is right about the state operated casinos. There will be less per capita for us, less government services we will be going backward.

It will come down to which casino has more attractive incentives to gamble.

The tribe would be wise to be more focused on a future with less gaming revenue. More stable businesses that cater to the local communities needs like a tribal grocery store, auto repair shops, Donut/Coffee shop, people's simple needs are a staple commodity that people depend on.

At the same time, creating jobs for people to spend part of their income in these establishments. It's a fair trade off that everyone won wins. The payoff will come in time, in those businesses. So it will payoff in the long run.

The ideal thing would be for tribal members get into this and create small businesses here.
