The Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana won't be sharing gaming revenues with the local community this quarter.

Revenues at the Paragon Casino Resort have been fluctuating and the tribe isn't always required to make payments. However, this is the third quarter in the last year that no payment was made, The Avoyelles Journal reported.

“Although no quarterly public distribution will be made, we want to assure our guests, vendors and employees that we are generating sufficient funds to operate our business and provide the excellent customer service that our patrons expect,” Chairman Joey Barbry told the paper.

The tribe celebrated the 20th anniversary of the casino in June. When it opened, there were only a few casinos in the state and now there's more than 20.
