The expansion project broke ground nearly a year ago.

Nebraska’s Prairie Flower Casino in Carter Lake is looking at a completion date closer to 2025, according to a local news report in the Fremont Tribune.

The casino broke ground close to a year ago on its expansion project. Construction on Prairie Flower Casino was scheduled to wrap up this summer.

However, Ponca Tribe of Nebraska spokesman James Centers told local news that the project is slightly behind, due to some supply chain issues because of the pandemic.

He went on to note that being a few months behind on the project is “not terrible.”

The Tribe is anticipating that the expansion will be finished either by the end of this year or by early next year. Once completed, the updated facility will have an additional 60,000 square feet. The expanded casino floor will be home to more than 600 games, along with a sportsbook and additional dining options.

Centers said that there is a possibility that the project could make up some time during the winter months “if the weather holds like it is right now.”

Prairie Flower Casino welcomed its first guests in 2018. Since its opening, the casino’s revenue has been used to support Tribal members and the community, the local report said.

More than $28m in revenue has been allocated to support Tribal services that include social services, job training, health care and cultural preservation, according to the local report.

The casino has contributed another $2.3m to the City of Carter Lake, which was used to support general community improvements, police, fire and infrastructure.

He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.
