4 companies seek to revive stalled Terre Haute casino plans

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Two companies that already operate casinos in Indiana are among four that have applied for the license to open up a new casino in Terre Haute. Those applications were submitted by Wednesday’s deadline to the Indiana Gaming Commission for the Terre Haute project that has stalled amid an investigation into criminal and financial misconduct allegations against top executives in the ownership group which first sought the license in 2019. The applicants include Hard Rock International, which owns the Gary casino and had an agreement to operate the Terre Haute casino for the previous owners. Also applying was Full House Resorts, which owns the Rising Sun, Indiana, casino.
