TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A new report shows that Florida's Indian casinos posted a double-digit increase in revenue from entertainment, food and hotel stays in 2012.

The Indian Gaming Industry Report released Wednesday says the non-gaming revenue increased 25 percent in 2012 over the previous year.

Experts attribute the gain to ambitious development of existing facilities, primarily the Hard Rock hotel and casino locations in Tampa and Hollywood.

The numbers come as lawmakers sit tight on measures that would allow larger gambling interests into the state and Gov. Rick Scott hammers out a new contract with the Seminole Indian Tribe, which gives a portion of its gaming revenues to the state.
