Tribal gaming centers across the state are racking in millions of dollars for Oklahoma education, said officials. 

State finance records show Oklahoma took in more than $70 million from American Indian gambling casinos last year--more than triple the amount from 2006.

The Chickasaw Nation brought in the most money with $18 million alone, followed by the Choctaw Nation then the Cherokee Nation.
