Caesars Indiana now Horseshoe Casino

 On Friday the transformation of Caesars Indiana to Horseshoe Casino and Hotel Southern Indiana was officially complete. The riverboat casino re-branding took less than two years and yesterday politicians and gambling figures cut the ribbon of the $53 million renovation project. The change was initiated by parent company Harrah's Entertainment Inc. about 18 months ago, a move that industry experts said would limit its Caesars brand to the high-end Las Vegas and Atlantic City markets. The new casino will offer over 2000 slot machines and over 100 gambling tables, but also boasted a 503-room hotel. "It has been a challenge for all of us to do the right thing with the money, and I think we’ve done a pretty good job of that," Neal Walkoff, vice president of Horseshoe Southern Indiana, said during the casino opening.
