The IGA's members created more than $1 billion in economic impact in Iowa in 2015.
The IGA Mission
To promote the benefits of Iowa's casino gaming industry and advocate mutually agreed upon positions. The IGA is comprised of 19 commercial riverboat and racetrack casinos across Iowa. We are united in the effort to promote the positive economic impact the gaming industry has on our state. While the membership of the IGA is extremely diverse, we speak with a unified voice in accomplishing our mission.
IGA members employ thousands of Iowans, and together we make a commitment to purchase products and commodities manufactured and grown in this state (Buy Iowa First). In 2015, 84.4 percent of purchases were from Iowa-based vendors, which totaled more than $289.4 million. Plus, our members' employees provide ongoing proactive community development initiatives.
The diverse entertainment available at member casinos has resulted in considerable growth of the tourism and convention industries in Iowa. Visitors find quality entertainment with many amenities such as spas, salons, bowling alleys, golf courses and hotels.
