A survey conducted by casino operator Winstar Casino and published Wednesday found that Arizonans are “happy” with the state’s casinos, even if they are not among the top 100.
The survey of 1,000 adults from May 15 to May 17 found that 67% of those surveyed say they are “very” or “somewhat” satisfied with the casino industry, with the next largest numbers at 71% and 76%.
The highest percentage of satisfied casino patrons are those who have been to more than 20 casino locations, the survey found.
The lowest numbers were found at 10.2%.
A similar survey conducted in 2018 by the American Gaming Association found that Arizona’s casinos ranked No. 1 in the country.
The Arizona Republic reported on Wednesday that Arizona is one of the first states to adopt legislation to exempt casino operators from a state law requiring casinos to be fully staffed 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
The bill, which went into effect last month, requires that casinos be staffed by an onsite employee on the same night and Monday to ensure safe and sound operations.
The law, which was sponsored by former Republican Gov.
Doug Ducey and approved by voters in 2016, was designed to provide better protection to businesses and patrons from the effects of climate change.
In 2016, the state of Arizona also enacted a law that prohibited any entity from operating a casino on the state property for more than 30 days.
The law was aimed at protecting the environment, including protecting wildlife, the environment of streams, waterways and wetlands, and protecting wildlife habitat.
The new law has also come under fire for allowing for the state to keep the casinos afloat by allowing them to operate 24 hours per day and 6 days per week, according to the Republic.
The casinos were recently placed on probation by the U.S. Department of the Treasury for violating the Clean Water Act.
The department is considering a lawsuit from casino operators, but the state is seeking a temporary restraining order that would keep the law in place until the case is resolved.
The bill passed both houses of the Arizona Legislature in 2018, and it has passed both chambers of the state Senate.
