November doldrums at Northwest Indiana casinos Andrew Steele, Northwest Indiana Times · December 11, 2018 at 1:55 pm Northwest Indiana’s casinos felt November’s chill as they recorded a 3.4 percent year-over-year drop in gaming revenue, to $72.1 million. Gains at Ameristar and Blue Chip, and a near-even month at Majestic Star, were offset by a double-digit decline at Horseshoe, according to statistics released by the Indiana Gaming Commission Monday. “Northwest Indiana continues a six-month trend of teetering up and down,” Horseshoe Senior Vice President and General Manager Dan Nita said. “This happened to be a down month.” Hammond Horseshoe’s decline was 11.3 percent, to $29.8 million. Nita noted Horseshoe had had a strong 2017, with a significant jump in table-game play.
