Caesars Entertainment has just unveiled their latest plans for the Indiana Grand Casino, and that it includes a $33 million make-over.
The project includes boosting the gambling space by 3250 square meters. The extra space will see the casino add 150 slot machines and over 30 more gambling tables. If you don’t feel like going to the casino, you can always stay home and play the slots online at WooCasino.
The casino expects that the scaling-up project will create more than a hundred extra permanent jobs at the casino, which will boost the local Indianapolis economy.
It is not just the gaming areas that are benefitting. Caesars will also expand the rest and relaxation and dining facilities. The specifics concerning the restaurants and bars will be announced at a later date.
The Indiana Grand is currently Indiana’s most successful casinos and one of the biggest. The casino has over 1000 slot machines and over 60 table games. Following the renovation, the Indian Grand will be the second biggest casino in the state, only slightly behind rival the Horseshoe.
Last year the Indiana Grand generated $31 million in taxes for the state of Indiana. State officials are happy to see the expansion plan, which they hope will convert into higher tax revenues for 2021 and going forward.
Caesars Was Always Going to Spend Big
Caesars first hinted that the renovation was likely after revealing it planned to invest heavily into its Indiana properties.
Caesars manager said it made sense to invest in the Indiana Grand as it was in a strong location, only half an hour drive from Indianapolis, and was already profitable. He said they are ready to spend over $30 million to turn it into a world-class casino.
The property is currently thriving thanks to amendments to the law, which allowed the property to host casino games at the beginning of the last year. As gambling laws carried on to be liberalized, the casino is in a strong position to capture market share.
Indiana Grand Is Getting Fancy Poker Facilities
Caesars won’t just add new restaurants, slots, and table games when they renovate the Indiana Grandy. They also plan to build a huge poker room which will be over 6000 square feet and feature approximately 30 tables.
The room will be inspired by the World Series Of Poker, including theme and branding. Players will get to feel like they are playing in Las Vegas. If players are lucky, they can even win themselves an entry into the World Series Of Poker Main Event if they win selected qualifying tournaments which will be hosted in the poker room.
Caesars is hoping to have the overhaul finished by December. They expect the renovations to significantly increase foot traffic in their casino.
