Sneak Peek at Terre Haute Casino Plans
TERRE HAUTE - The Indiana Gaming Commission has yet to approve the license for a proposed casino in Terre Haute, but the developer seeking the license has released some details about the gaming venue.
The Tribune-Star is reporting Spectacle Jack LLC, a subsidiary of Indianapolis-based Spectacle Entertainment, plans to build a 100,000-square-foot casino that would offer a total 1,200 machines and gaming tables.
The publication says it received a redacted copy of the casino license application after it filed a public record request with the gaming commission.
The application indicates the company intends to include four restaurants, one of which would be a Hard Rock Café, the signature restaurant of the Hard Rock brand. The company is calling the Terre Haute venue Rocksino.
Spectacle Entertainment plans to begin construction this year on its new Hard Rock Casino Gary. The IGC granted the gaming company permission to consolidate the licenses of two floating casinos in Gary into one operation. That move created the open license which was granted to Vigo county.
The publication says the Terre Haute plans also call for four bars, two gaming areas, a high-roller room, and a special location to operate a sports betting venue.
The application also indicates plans for an adjacent Home2Suites hotel and a provision for a future on-site hotel.
The paper says the gaming commission will host a meeting February 7 to consider the lone license application made by Spectacle Entertainment. The meeting will be held at the Vigo County Public Library.
