Indiana Casinos Made $217 Million Of Revenue Throughout March

Posted on April 12, 2023 - Last Updated on May 8, 2023

Indiana’s casinos posted another month of strong numbers during March. The industry racked up over $217 million in revenue last month.

Casinos in Indiana typically make approximately $200 million in any given month, so March was right on par. It was a small increase from February’s $205 million in revenue.

$217 million made for a solid March in Indiana. That number translated to about $74 million worth of taxes for the state. In March 2022, casinos generated $235 million in revenue.

According the latest state report, Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana was again the most successful spot in the state. The casino in northwest Indiana has been the dominant player in the state’s market since it opened for business in 2021.

Hard Rock was the most profitable location in March, but a handful of other casinos also stood out:

  • Hard Rock Northern Indiana: $40 million
  • Horseshoe Indianapolis: $34 million
  • Horseshoe Hammond: $29 million
  • Caesars Southern Indiana: $24 million
  • Harrah’s Hoosier Park: $21 million

Which casino games were the most popular?

Hoosiers love playing table games, but their popularity pales compared with electronic gaming devices (EGDs).

EGDs cover the vast majority of electronic games that you can find in the state’s casinos. In a nutshell, if it isn’t a table game, there’s a high chance that it’s an EGD.

Slot machines are the most popular option out of the group, but other options like virtual blackjack and video poker also fall under the EGD umbrella.

In March, these games brought in over $184 million in revenue for Indiana’s casinos. Most of the state’s overall revenue typically comes from these games, and last month was no different.

Table games chipped in another $40 million to add to the pile, but their popularity only goes so far.

The disparity between table games and EGDs makes sense considering the overall availability. Indiana’s casinos had 593 table games active last month, which was a much lower than the 14,293 EGDs that were available.
