How Construction Looks At Terre Haute Casino Resort, Set To Open In 2024

Posted on November 22, 2023

Work to build the newest Indiana casino continues on schedule to open at the end of March or early April 2024. The Terre Haute Casino Resort is under construction at a 50-acre site on the east side of Terre Haute.

With most of the exterior taken care of, the work is now mainly focused on the amenities inside the building. The casino has been posting construction updates on social media to give future customers a sneak peek at what’s to come.

Folks in the Hoosier State got another look inside the newest Indiana casino. With Indiana online casinos seemingly distant from legalization, news on the brick-and-mortar front is as exciting as it gets for gamblers in the state.

More employees needed

The Terre Haute Casino is continuing its push to hire more employees. The company has held several job fairs in recent months.

The casino is bringing an estimated 500 full and part-time jobs to the community. With plans to open its doors early in 2024, interviews are underway. Open positions include:

  • Dealers
  • Management
  • Security
  • Food and beverage

Terre Haute Casino is an ongoing project for parent company Churchill Downs. The Indiana Gaming Commission approved the $290 million project in November 2021.
