VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - We are learning more about the four companies that have applied to build a casino in Vigo County.
The Indiana Gaming Commission released a detailed breakdown of all four. Here's how it looks.
The four companies are Full House Resorts, with its American Place Casino, Churchill Downs, with its Queen of Terre Haute Casino, Premier Gaming, and Hard Rock, with its Rocksino.
Where would they be built?
Full House Resorts - Full House says it will build its permanent facility at 5995 Margaret Avenue in eastern Vigo County. Full House is the only company that proposed a temporary location while its main building is under construction. If selected, they plan to open in the Haute City Center Mall temporarily.
Churchill Downs - The documents didn't provide an exact location for the Churchill Downs proposal, but this would go on Terre Haute's southside, unlike the other three. They would build on what they say is an undeveloped plot of land on Honey Creek Drive west of Haute City Center.
Premier Gaming - The information on Premier didn't identify an exact location either. The company says it would build near the I-70 and State Road 46 interchange in eastern Vigo County.
Hard Rock - We've previously reported on the Hard Rock's proposed location. They would build at 2555 S. Joe Fox Street on the city's east side. This is just south of the eastside Walmart.
