The entity that will operate Terre Haute’s planned new casino is now known as Lucy Luck Gaming, according to an announcement from Greg Gibson, casino chairman.
Gibson hopes to announce a groundbreaking date in the coming weeks.
The casino operator was formerly known as Spectacle Jack. The change occurred Dec. 21, according to information from the Indiana Gaming Commission.
The casino will bring economic development opportunities and 500-plus new jobs to the gaming industry and the west-central Indiana region, according to a news release provided through RJL Solutions.
“We look forward to bringing this state-of-the-art facility to Terre Haute,” Gibson stated. “Our collaboration with Hard Rock International has expanded upon our vision to create economic opportunities for our region and state.”
Gibson’s two children, Jack and Lucy, are often the namesake of his various business endeavors.
“The Terre Haute community will be the first endeavor for the Lucy Luck Gaming brand,” Gibson said. “The community has embraced and fought for this project, and we are certainly looking forward to bringing this project to fruition.”
The Tribune-Star will provide more information as it becomes available.
