INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - Hard Rock made a statement in reference to Lucy Luck during Wednesday's meeting with the Indiana Gaming Commission.

News 10's Jon Swaner reports during Hard Rock's pitch to the gaming commission; the company said they are confident a settlement agreement would be in place if they receive the license.

Jon Lucas, Hard Rock's CEO, said he spoke with minority owner and Terre Haute businessman Greg Gibson who made assurances of the settlement following Monday's meeting with the gaming commission.

The settlement process with Lucy Luck could impact the Hard Rock proposal. The casino would go on the same site as Gibson proposed for Lucy Luck's version of a Hard Rock casino.

In June, News 10 reported the Indiana Gaming Commission denied Lucy Luck's request to renew its gaming license for Vigo County. In doing that, the application process reopened.

The commission, at the time, said Lucy Luck did not have an executive team in place to run the casino. The commission also said casino operations were not fully funded.

On Monday, the commission met virtually and rejected a settlement offer from Lucy Luck.
