The Arizona Department of Gaming says contributions to the state from tribal gambling revenue will be about $25 million for the quarter that ended on March 31.
That's about a 4.2 percent increase when compared with the same quarter in the 2016 fiscal year.
Department of Gaming director Daniel Bergin said Monday that after a few down quarters, the latest quarter's upswing hopefully is the start of a positive trend.
Nearly $12.5 million will go to Arizona's Instructional Improvement Fund for education. More than $6.2 million will go to support trauma and emergency services.
Other funding is used for the department's operating costs, state tourism and wildlife conservation.
Tribes with Class III casinos contribute 1 percent to 8 percent of gross gambling revenue to the state, cities, towns and counties.
