The Indiana Gaming Commission has given the green light to an amended application regarding a new Hard Rock casino in Terre Haute.
The application from Hard Rock and partner Spectacle Jack was approved after two executives from Spectacle Entertainment were removed.
Similar to the other Spectacle property that is being built in Gary, northern Indiana, the new Terre Haute property will be operated under the Hard Rock brand.
The plans propose a 100,000-square-foot casino that would offer a total of 1,200 machines and gaming tables.
According to WBIW, estimates are projecting that the new Hard Rock casino will send ‘US$45million to local communities’ in Indiana and ‘US$181million to the state in gaming revenue’ in its first seven years of operation.
Hard Rock recently reacquired the intellectual property rights to its Las Vegas operations.
