Muscogee Nation predicting big drop in gaming revenues

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation of Oklahoma has seen a big drop in gaming revenues and profits, The Tulsa World reports.

Revenues at the River Spirit Casino dropped 61 percent from the first quarter of the 2009 fiscal year to the current year, the paper said. Profits at all of the tribe's casinos are expected to be down 44 percent.

"I don't like to put this out in public, but I think our citizens have a right to know," Chief A.D. Ellis said at a tribal council meeting, the paper reported.

Ellis says the tribe tribe has already started to rebound.
