A new report says South Dakota's 13 Native American-owned casinos had among the fastest revenue growth nationwide in 2012.
Casino City's Indian Gaming Industry Report says revenue at Indian gambling facilities operated by nine tribes in the state rose about 14 percent that year, to $124 million.
Larry Eliason with the South Dakota Gaming Commission says the increase is most likely due to a state law change that took effect July 1, 2012.
The measure gave Deadwood and Indian casinos the option of raising maximum bet limits from $100 to $1,000.
But he says not all tribal casinos increased bet limits that much and any small increase can result in a large percentage change.
