Naskila Casino is an electronic bingo casino owned by the Alabama – Coushatta Tribe in Livingston, Texas. In a new study published by Texas Forest Country Partnership (TFCP), Naskila Casino was recognized as Polk County’s second-largest employer.
Casinos provide $170 million in impact to the East Texas economy, up from $140 million in 2018. The study states that Naskila Casino “supports more than 700 local jobs, numerous educational programs, healthcare facilities, and badly needed housing programs.” 릴게임
Naskila also affects neighboring counties, spending an additional $24 million on suppliers last year and $5 million on payroll.
Cecilia Flores, President of the Alabama-Kushata Tribal Council, said:
“I am very proud that our e-Bingo operations support hundreds of high-income jobs while providing entertainment to a million visitors each year. Ninety-five percent of them came from outside Fork County. This study strengthens the significant economic impact and jobs that Naskila Casino offers to Deep East Texas families. This impact should be preserved by the Senate passage of HR 759. Identifying the sovereign right of the Alabama-Kushata tribe to provide electronic bingo will save jobs for Eastern Texans and protect economic opportunities.”
