Weather impacts area casinos as attendees choose to stay home
The cold weather last month led people to stay inside and relax in the warmth. Casino Aztar's general manager says this caused revenue to drop. Compared to the same period last year, Aztar had 10 percent fewer visitors and 6 percent less revenue this year. The weather impacted other area casinos too, including the French Lick Casino in Southern Indiana and Harrah's Casino in Metropolis, Illinois.
