Representatives from Full House Resorts have held a public meeting on its proposal for the new Indiana casino.
US.- Full House Resorts has presented its $250m plan for American Place Casino as it competes for the Vigo casino licence. The company is one of four applicants competing to run a casino in Terre Haute.
Full House Resorts held a question and answer session at the Idle Creek Banquet Center. It proposes a 100,000-square foot casino with 1,000 slots, 50 gaming tables and a 100-room hotel. It says it would create 1,800 construction jobs and 800 permanent jobs.
The company said it would locate a smaller, temporary casino in the Haute City Center mall, pending Indiana Gaming Commission approval, while its proposed facility is designed and constructed. That process is expected to take 18 to 24 months.
Alex Stolyar, senior vice president and chief development officer for Full House Resorts, said at the pitching that the contractor would be Indianapolis-based F.A. Wilhelm Construction Co., Inc.
Full House Resorts is competing against Churchill Downs, Hard Rock, and Premier Gaming Group. The Indiana Gaming Commission will examine the applications of each company and announce a winner on November 17.
