Northwest Indiana casinos see year-over-year revenue increase for June

Last week, the Indiana Gaming Commission released the monthly revenue report for casinos in Indiana, with the five casinos in the Northwest region of the state bringing in just over $75 million for June. This was a little over 6% more than the $70.96 million earned in the same month in 2016. Three of the fie casinos were able to see their revenues increase for June while two saw a slight drop in earnings.

The Ameristar Casino was able to see a significant increase in revenue earnings when comparing year-over-year totals. For June, Ameristar earned $17.81 million which is quite a bit more than the $16.38 million earned in 2016. Blue Chip Casino located in Michigan City also earned a nice increase for June, with $13.05 million this year over the $12.49 million from 2016. The Horseshoe Hammond saw a more than 11% increase in June earnings with $32.33 million earned. Far better than the $29.18 million from last year.

On the downside, the Majestic Star casinos did not fare so well. The 7BALL CC Majestic Star I earned $7.32 million which is under the $7.50 million earned in 2016. The Majestic Star II was down from $5.41 million in June of 2016 to $4.68 million this year.
