TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The deadline to apply for the casino license coming to Vigo County has been extended by one day.
The original deadline to apply for the license was Sunday, Dec. 1. It has been moved to Dec. 2 to fall on a Monday instead.
Indiana legislators passed a bill earlier this year that would allow an inland casino license to move from Gary to the Terre Haute area. Vigo County voters overwhelmingly supported the measure, with 63% voting to approve the referendum on the Nov. 5 ballot.
One company that has expressed interest in the license is Spectacle Entertainment. Earlier this year, the company signed a letter of intent with the Hard Rock Casino that would bring the franchise to Terre Haute if Spectacle Entertainment is awarded the license.
