Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians

In December 2020 Caesars Southern Indiana was sold to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in North Carolina. After eight months of state processing, the deal was finalized in September 2021. The Indiana Gaming Commission had forced the sale of the casino as a condition to signing off on Caesars' takeover of Eldorado Resorts in July 2020.

Caesars Southern Indiana is now owned by NC Cherokee

September 11, 2021

The $250 million deal by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) to buy Caesars Southern Indiana has officially closed. The casino will continue with the Caesar's name brand and continue with the same employees.

After closing last week, the EBCI released this statement:

"Today marks a significant milestone, not only for the tribe, but also for our longstanding relationship with Caesars Entertainment. Caesars Entertainment has been a great partner for us in North Carolina, and we're excited to continue that success in Indiana."

- Principal Chief Richard Sneed

Caesars and the EBCI have been casino partners since 1997, when Caesars began managing the tribe's Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, North Carolina. The partnership expanded in 2015 with the opening of Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Hotel & Casino in Murphy, NC.

Indiana approves Cherokee (EBCI) purchase of Caesars

August 23, 2021

The Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC) last week approved the $250 million sale of Caesars Southern Indiana to the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. The deal was originally announced last December and is expected to close next month.

Under Cherokee ownership the casino will keep its Caesars Southern Indiana name and its Caesar branding of the sportbook and rewards club. In addion, all casino and hotel employees will continue with their employment.

Caesars Southern Indiana currently has 1,136 slot machines, 87 table games, a 30-table poker room, a sportsbook, three restaurants, a 503-room hotel and a conference center.

The purchase transaction is through EBCI Holdings, a subsidiary of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) that pursues commercial acquisitions for the tribe amid new casino competition in North Carolina coming soon from Kings Mountain, NC (Two Kings Casino) and Bristol, VA (Hard Rock Casino).

Caesars Entertainment manages two Cherokee casinos in North Carolina: Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, NC, and Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Hotel & Casino in Murphy, NC. The business relationship between the two goes back to 1997 when the first Cherokee casino opened.

The last step before closing the sale is the completion of the finance package. The tribe is borrowing $160 million from Wells Fargo and paying cash for the balance. The purchase should be finalized sometime in September.
