Caesars Southern Indiana Casino had a grand opening this week. The gambling facility has been developed at an estimated cost of $90 million. It is another major project completed by the US casino and hospitality giant Caesars Entertainment after it merged with Eldorado Resorts earlier in the year.
The Southern Indiana casino will replace the Horseshoe Southern Indiana operated by Caesars.
The entire project had been under development for over a year and a half. The gambling venue hosts a 110,000-square-foot integrated facility featuring a combined dining and retail outlets with a multi-faceted gaming space.
“With completely new gaming facilities, increased amenities and new restaurant offerings, Caesars Southern Indiana will elevate the experience for our guests,” said Caesars Southern Indiana Senior Vice President and General Manager Brad Seigel.
“We look forward to making each visit memorable with the exceptional service, friendly team members, and thrilling gaming and entertainment that our guests have come to love at our home here in Southern Indiana.”
It also has a volt lounge that will feature live entertainment on weekends. The casino also has a no-smoking gaming area.
The sports betting area at the venue has been named “The Book” and would be a permanent betting venue where patrons can wager on their favorite sporting events.
The sports gambling is offered from Monday through Friday from 12 p.m. to midnight and on weekends from 10 a.m. to midnight.
The wagering facility hosts 30 large television screens along with multiple kiosks and windows.
The gambling operator also has plans for further addition to the property of which a convention center is prominent and promising.
Earlier in the year in June, Caesars Entertainment was acquired by gambling and hospitality giant Eldorado Resorts in a $17.3 billion deal.
