A survey conducted by the American Gaming Association showed that the U.S. gambling industry's revenue increased by 4.8% from 2011 to 2012, totaling $37.3 billion last year. AGA President and CEO Frank Fahrenkopf said the results indicate that the gaming industry has "weathered" the 2008 recession. "Whether we look at jobs, casino visitors served or tax revenues being produced, the bottom line is that there is much to be optimistic about in the commercial casino industry," Fahrenkopf said.
