The state of Oregon has plenty of casinos, boasting a total of nine Native American resorts and a tenth, Bridge of the Gods Resort and Casino in Hood River, being built. Oregon is one of many states that do not allow casino gaming except on reservation land, or land that has been purchased as "restored tribes" and transferred into federal trust for purposes of gaming.
The U.S. Congress enacted the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act in 1988 that allows Federally-recognized Native American tribes to petition the National Indian Gaming Commission(NIGC)for the right to operate gaming in most states. In Oregon there are four recognized tribes that operate the states nine casinos. These casinos provide thousands of jobs, as well as secondary income for businesses in surrounding areas, both on-and-off reservation land.
