The Prairie Flower Casino was packed on last Wednesday, 24 hours before it will officially open to the public.

Casino in Carter Lake, run by the Ponca tribe, hosted tribal members and employees ahead of the grand opening on Thursday.

“Its been a great day for our people. This has been a long time in making,” said Larry Wright Jr. Chairman of the Ponca Tribe.”

“Its exciting though, to see that much interest,” Wright Jr. Said.

The crews are put the finishing touches on the property. Security at the entrance turned groups away. After decades of controversy and delays, the National Indian Gaming Commission gave the green planet on the plan last November.

A pending federal lawsuit, filed in december 2017 by the city of council bluffs and the states of lowa and Nebraska seeks to reverse the gaming commission decisions.

“We have gone through that process. It’s gone through the courts. It’s gone through the agencies. We have covered three presidential administration. So everybody that’s had a chance to look at this, has looked at it,” Wright Jr. Said.

The Casino employs 100 people, including around 20 tribal members.
