The 13 Indiana casinos continue to provide strong tax revenues to support projects throughout the state. From the wagering tax alone, over $1.2 billion to date has gone into the Build Indiana Fund to support road and bridge upgrades, as well as other much-needed infrastructure improvements and worthy community projects. All 92 counties reap the benefits of casino gaming revenue via the Build Indiana Fund.
The over $1.5 billion to date generated in admission tax also has benefited communities and the state. Casino host communities’ development agreements add another layer of economic benefit to the picture. Finally, the Indiana economy, and Hoosier families, benefit from the over 13,000 jobs the industry has created with annual wages and benefits totaling more than $500 million.
Indiana’s casinos are the fifth largest employer in Indiana.
