Indiana casino earnings slip again in June

Indiana casinos won $197.2 million in June, a 7% decrease from May's win of $211.9 million. The state's top-earning casino is Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana with $33.1 million, while Horseshoe Casino in Hammond won 15% less than Hard Rook. The falloff in casino earnings is due to the nation's high inflation rate and the end of various federal COVID-19 relief and economic stimulus programs. Governor Eric Holcomb proposes to return another share of the state budget reserves to Hoosier taxpayers.
