PHOENIX -- State authorities said revenue from tribal casinos in Arizona are holding steady.

The Arizona Department of Gaming reported Wednesday that the tribes' payments to the state will be about $23.9 million for the quarter that ended Sept. 30.

Gaming officials said that total is within a few thousand dollars of matching the same quarter of a year ago.

Money from the payments will be distributed to various special funds, including ones for education, emergency services, tourism and gambling prevention.

The 23 tribal casinos in Arizona paid the state between 1 and 8 percent of their gross revenue from certain types of gambling, such as slot machines and card games.
