Florida became a top 10 state in 2002,supplying 10.5 million casino trips (4% of the U.S. market share) -- a surprise given the lack of convenient gaming destinations for Florida residents.Casino gambling is enjoyed throughout the United States.

Arkansas (2.2 million trips) was added to the listin 2002, while North Carolina and Georgia were dropped (1.9 million trips)." Editor's note: The link below is to a 1MB PDF document.
