Jobs
Promise: 33,690 new jobs in the state by 1985, including 24,600 in casino hotels
Reality: 41,000 people directly employed by the casinos

Investments
Promise: $844 million in new construction by 1985
Reality: $3 billion in capital investments by casinos

Wages
Promise: $330 million in new wages by 1985
Reality: Annual payroll of $797 million
