Hard Rock Northern Indiana brought in $32.7m in revenue for the month of August, marking its eleventh month as the highest-earning casino located in Indiana.
The Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC) revealed that, in August, Hard Rock tallied more revenue after paying successful bettors, than any of the 11 other commercial casinos in the state.
The $32.7m brought in was a 7.6% increase compared to August 2021. The casino's closest competitor was Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, which earned $29.3m, down 11.8% from the same period last year.
Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana Matt Schuffert president said: "From a volume perspective, slots and tables grew about 15% year-over-year, but we had many, many gamblers who left Hard Rock very happy in August."
Hard Rock's table games totaled $8.5m in August and most of the revenue came from baccarat. This is down from July's posting of $11.9m which means that more players went home with money in August.
Hard Rock led the state in August slot play with $248.2m but generated revenue of just $24.3m for the month.
Throughout the state, casino revenue for August was $205.8m compared to $209.3m in August 2021, a 1.6% decline.
The recent start of the NFL season is expected to boost revenue, especially with the launch of the mobile Hard Rock Sportsbook. In January this year, $500.1m was wagered on sports throughout the month.
According to the IGC, Indiana collected $35.3m in tax revenue from slot machine and table game play and another $2.4m from settled sports wagers in August.
