Revenue at Sioux City Hard Rock casino behind projections, but ahead of predecessor's record


SIOUX CITY, Iowa — The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City's revenue in its first 11 months has fallen short of projections, but still outpaced its predecessor's all-time annual high.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1Ifvxl4 ) that the Hard Rock took in $70 million in gambling revenue in its first 11 months through June 30, the end of the casino's fiscal year. Original projections estimated $90.5 million in the first year of operations, and the first full year's revenue looks to come in lower than that.

But the 11-month total already exceeds the all-time annual high of $61 million set in 2012 by the Argosy riverboat casino, which closed when the downtown Hard Rock opened.

Hard Rock's top month for the year was $7.165 million, collected during its opening month last August.
