The new year brought new developments at the Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. The gambling facility confirmed the launch of live dealer table games for the first time since it started welcoming guests back in 2008.
The first day of the year kicked off with a ceremony that saw Indiana’s basketball star Victor Oladipo and State Senator Greg Taylor. A gathering of about 1,500 people was present at the venue to witness the launch of table games at the casino for the first time.
Addressing the gathering at the venue, Senator Taylor welcomed all those getting ready to deal cards in the State of Indiana
“This was about creating opportunities for the citizens of Indiana. For all of us here who were supportive of those efforts, we owe ourselves a round of applause for doing just that,” he said.
Basketball star, Victor Odalpio, congratulated the audience. “In 2020, I challenge you all to improve. I encourage you to make the best out of every day. Improve, because with improvement comes greatness,” he said.
“Thank you for letting me be here and experience this, and be a part of something that improves the State of Indiana,” noted Oladipo. “Because with the improvement the sky is the limit for this state.”
Indiana allowed table games to be launched at the two racing and casino gambling facilities in the state.
Now, Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino features four Roulette tables, two Craps tables, two Three Card Poker tables, four Blazing Seven Blackjack tables, one Double Deck Blackjack table and 13 Blackjack tables featuring EZ Bust and Trilux bets. Double Deck Blackjack and Hand-shuffle Blackjack high limit games are also available.
Earlier in the week, gambling and betting giant Churchill Downs also confirmed the launch of its online BetAmerica Sportsbook.
