By Bob Garcia
The Indiana casino is going to get a major facelift and new amenities
All visitors to the Indiana Grand Racing & Casino in Indiana can soon have a new and better experience every time they go. The property’s owner, Caesars Entertainment, has announced that it intends to invest $32.5 million for its expansion and improvement, a move that will provide updated amenities and more gambling options for patrons.
With this new plan, many benefits are anticipated, both for the residents, as at least 100 jobs will be created, as well as for the state, as it will receive more tax revenue. The company is looking to strengthen its commitment to the state of Indiana, where its acceptance has been more than favorable to its operations for several years now. The current gaming floor (70,000 square feet) will receive an estimated 25,000 square feet of additional expansion. In addition to all of this, the money will also go towards improvements to the design and architecture of the entire property itself, so that visitors can have a never-before-seen experience.
Caesars President and COO Anthony Carano said, “This investment at Indiana Grand is a testament to our continued commitment to Indiana.” He added that the company is “dedicated to enhancing and upgrading our operations at all of our locations, and we’re excited to start on several new phases of renovation and expansion in Shelbyville.”
As part of the new amenities that will be found at the casino, players will now be able to enjoy 100 new slot machines, while 25 table games will be added, as well. One of the most important additions is a WSOP (World Series of Poker) poker room that will offer a premium experience for all tournaments held at the casino. Although the physical casinos do not continue to have a large participation of the public, it is expected that in the future everything will return to normal, being this casino then, one of the biggest attractions of the state.
