Indiana June Gaming Revenue

Even though Indiana casinos and sportsbooks took a step back in June, state coffers managed to come out on the positive side. 

The latest report from the Indiana Gaming Commission shows while the 12 casino operators reported $189 million in adjusted gross revenue (AGR), it was down from the $191.8 million generated in May. 

However, despite low revenue numbers, casino operators managed to contribute more than $66 million in total tax revenue. 

Indiana tax revenue up in June 

The 13 Indiana sports betting operators contributed more than $1.8 million in taxes for the month, while casinos added $58.5 million. The result is $66.9 million in gaming taxes (including $4 million in supplemental taxes) in June, up from the $65.3 million collected in May. 

The spike in tax revenue is a result of decent revenue numbers for casino operators. 

In June, Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana and Horseshoe Indianapolis took the top honors with $34.1 million and $26.8 million, respectively.

The top five operators by AGR in June were:

  • Hard Rock – $34.1 million
  • Horseshoe Indianapolis – $26.8 million
  • Horseshoe Hammond – $22.5 million
  • Caesars Southern Indiana – $18.3 million
  • Harrah’s Hoosier Park – $18.2 million

Indiana sports betting takes a step back 

In May, Indiana sportsbooks generated $283.4 million in sports betting handle, an annual decrease of 9.1% compared to May 2022. Unfortunately, there aren’t many sports options to bet on in June.

As a result, sports betting handle in June topped out at $224.1 million.

Breaking down handle by sport paints a clear picture of what Hoosier State residents and guests are betting on. 

Handle by sport:

  • Football – $1,638,998
  • Basketball – $24,074,687
  • Baseball – $64,985,977
  • Parlay – $81,990,091
  • Other – $51,007,832
  • TOTAL – $223,697,585

The top online earner for June remains the DraftKings Sportsbook, which generated over $87 million in betting handle. Its partner, Ameristar Casino collected $1.2 million in retail sports betting handle. 

DraftKings competition, the FanDuel Sportsbook, generated $69.4 million in online handle, and $385,923 in retail handle, good for second. 

Lastly, the Hard Rock Sportsbook generated a mere $2.7 million in online handle, which was good for third in the state.
