The application period for the Vigo County casino license is now open, and several companies have expressed interest, according to an Indiana Gaming Commission spokesperson.
The application deadline is September 22. The Commission states that it has not received any official submissions. But that several companies have indicated that they are working on proposals. In the past, it was common for businesses to postpone their submissions until the last minute.
After the Commission denied Lucy Luck Gaming’s renewal request in June, the license application process reopened. Moreover, Greg Gibson, a local businessman, planned to build a Hard Rock-branded casino on Terre Haute’s east side.
