Hard Rock's New Terre Haute Proposal | Update

October 4, 2021

The Hard Rock casino proposal submitted to the Indiana Gaming Commission(IGC) last month is very similar to the Rocksino plan approved by the commission in 2020. The new Hard Rock proposal also includes an ownership share for Greg Gibson, owner of Lucy Luck Gaming, who held the Rocksino casino license until it was canceled last June.

The IGC did not renew the Rocksino license because the project did not appear to be moving forward. Key executive positions had not filled and all the financing had not be secured. In this new Rocksino proposal Gibson will be an investor and have no active role in the operation of the casino.

The new Rocksino plan will cost $200 million instead of the previous $175 million. The plan includes a 175-room hotel, a 300-seat showroom and 1,000-square-feet of retail space. The number of slot machines is reduced from 1,150 to 850 and table games are reduced from 50 to 35.

Terre Haute casino project is delayed again by IGC

May 26, 2021

The Terre Haute casino project, named Rocksino by Hard Rock, was hoping to begin construction in June; however, in a meeting yesterday the Indiana Gaming Commission dealt the schedule a setback.

The financial plan submitted for the project was expected to be approved yesterday by the commission because five local banks are willing to finance the $170 million cost of the project. The commission, however, did not bring up a vote on the plan and instead delayed further action until after the renewal of the casino license is decided in a few weeks.

Terre Haute casino hopes for groundbreaking in June

May 22, 2021

The Terre Haute casino is moving closer to a groundbreaking date after completing an important step for the Indiana Gaming Commission. The commission wanted a formal management agreement for the Rocksino by Hard Rock Terre Haute before renewing the casino license this month.

A management agreement has been presented to the commission by the two partners of the Terre Haute casino project: Hard Rock International and Lucy Luck Gaming. The agreement defines the role of Hard Rock to manage the casino operation. Hard Rock International, owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, also is a part owner and manager of the new Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana.

After the gaming commission meets later this month, it is hoped the groundbreaking for the casino can be scheduled in June. Chairman of Lucy Luck Gaming, Greg Gibson, told reporters:

"... no definite groundbreaking date set yet for Terre Haute. We are working with the Indiana Gaming Commission on our annual license renewal and approval of a finance plan, so that we will be in a position to break ground as soon as possible.

"We are sure hoping for later June. Hard Rock has told the Indiana Gaming Commission they want to get started before the end of June."

Construction of the Terre Haute casino is expected to take 14 months to complete. If the groundbreaking happens in June, the casino could open in late summer 2022.
