ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) - A central Indiana casino official says about a dozen workers have been laid off because of slower business amid more competition from Ohio casinos.

Hoosier Park Racing & Casino vice president Jahnae Erpenbach says the Anderson casino made the job cuts through a reduction in staff and the combining and changing of responsibilities among its about 1,000 employees.

Hoosier Park reported a 3 percent drop in gambling revenue during 2013, while several of Indiana’s 12 other casinos saw even larger declines.

Erpenbach tells The Herald Bulletin (https://bit.ly/1bZkOv6 ) that customers won’t be affected by the changes made in staffing levels. She says future hiring at the casino will depend on its business success.
