Virginia: New Norfolk casino may bring millions in gambling tax revenue Jerome García, GamblingNews.com · October 8, 2020 at 10:45 pm Earlier this week, at a City Council work session, officials of Norfolk, Virginia revealed projections about the gambling tax revenue which may be raised by the proposed Pamunkey Indian Tribe casino. The first public projections since December outlined that the city can benefit from tens of millions of gambling taxes every year. According to City Manager Chip Filer, approximately $34 million to $44 million may reach the state’s coffers each year. This is if the Pamunkey tribe builds the $500 million hotel-casino resort as previously announced. However, the massive casino project in Norfolk depends on a referendum set for November 3. But if build as advertised, Filer estimates that the city will profit not only from gambling tax but also from local taxes such as food, beverages, and real estate levies.
