Industry Overview

Indiana Riverboat Gaming Act
This law, effective July 1, 1993, was passed to spur job growth and development in “economically depressed areas of Indiana” and to “provide for significant economic development over a large geographic area.”

Residents living in all Indiana counties that border Ohio and Lake Michigan were offered the opportunity to pass a referendum allowing casino gaming in their county. Since that time, the Indiana Gaming Commission has approved licenses to develop 13 casinos.
