US.- The four casinos in Northwest Indiana have reported $93m in revenue for June, an increase of 23 per cent year-on-year.
According to the Indiana Gaming Commission, Horseshoe Hammond led the pack, with $34.5m in revenue. That’s a 6.5 per cent increase from the previous June ($32.4m).
Hard Rock Northern Indiana more than doubled the revenue of the former Majestic Star Casinos it replaced. It posted $25.9m in revenues, up from $12.1m.
Ameristar in East Chicago reported $21.6m (+20 per cent), and Blue Chip in Michigan City $11m (-15 per cent).
