Hoosier Park casino gets green light from Indiana Gaming Commission
With mandatory IGC audit complete, Hoosier Park Racing & Casino to fully open June 2
The Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC) today gave its endorsement for the new casino at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino to open to the public. Following their mandatory audit process of a testing event May 29, gaming officials are allowing Indiana’s newest casino to officially open its doors to the public at 9 a.m., Monday, June 2.
The 92,000-square-foot, permanent casino will now remain open 24 hours a day, 365 days per year, to gamers who want to try their luck on any of the 2,000 new state-of-the art slot machines featuring the latest in slot and marketing technology, including interlinked progressives and multi-player electronic table games. Hoosier Park also features live horse racing from April through November, as well as simulcast wagering all year round. Nine new bars and restaurants have also opened for business.
“Our atmosphere offers something for everyone,” said Jim Brown, general manager of gaming. “The addition of round-the-clock Vegas-style casino action, live entertainment, eclectic dining, along with the first-class horse racing we already offered, makes Hoosier Park Racing & Casino the first truly complete entertainment destination of its type in the state.”
A ribbon-cutting ceremony and playing of the first official dollar in the casino will take place Monday morning at 8:30 a.m. under the casino’s porte cochere entrance. The community is invited to attend and then be the first to play. All qualified guests who sign up on June 2 for the Player’s Club will earn $10 in credits to be used on any of the electronic gaming devices.
