The doors will open on Friday morning following a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Indiana’s casino roster will increase to a “baker’s dozen” at the end of the week, with the opening of Terre Haute Casino Resort (THCR).

The Hoosier State’s newest casino will be open to the public starting April 5.

To commemorate the grand opening, there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30AM. The destination said its first 1,000 patrons will receive a free t-shirt in celebration of the launch.

Indiana’s 13th casino will offer players 1,000 slot machines, 35 live table games, a sportsbook and a poker room within its 400,000 square feet of gaming space. The Vigo County destination will also feature a 122-room luxury hotel, along with nine food and beverage options. Among those will be Four Cornered Steakhouse, which is a regionally inspired restaurant, and the Altitude Bar and Lounge.

CDI is the casino’ s owner and operator. The company has extended its casino reach to 14 states.

THCR VP and General Manager Mike Rich noted that bringing a casino to the Vigo County area has been long overdue.

He commented, “Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley have waited a long time for this vision to become a reality. Churchill Downs Incorporated is excited to open one of the premier gaming destinations in the Midwest on April 5.

“The launch of Terre Haute Casino Resort extends beyond physical structure; it's about creating a vibrant and integral part of this community, and we couldn't be more thrilled to bring this exciting chapter to life."

Though the casino will be up and running on Friday, the hotel portion of the new destination will not open until May 15.
