Southern Indiana Casino Changes Hands

Same casino, new owner.

A ribbon cutting was held Wednesday to mark the acquisition of Caesars Southern Indiana by EBCI Holdings, a company run by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

EBCI operates two tribal casinos in North Carolina, and this is their first acquisition outside that state.

Caesars sold the casino as a condition of its merger with Eldorado Resorts.

The casino will continue to be branded as Caesars Southern Indiana.

Richard Sneed, Principal Chief of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, says they plan on some capital improvements to the hotel and upgrades and changes to food and beverage offerings.
