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 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.
