Full House Resorts unveils “American Place”, its proposal

0


LAS VEGAS, September 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Full House Resorts (NASDAQ: FLL) has submitted a proposal to the Indiana Gaming Commission (“IGC”) to develop and operate a new hotel and casino in Terre Haute, Indiana. The proposal followed an application process launched by the IGC on June 24, 2021 for a new casino in Vigo County, Indiana, with yesterday as the deadline for submitting applications. Terre Haute is the capital of Vigo County.

The company’s proposal – a $ 250 million gaming and entertainment destination named American Place – would be developed on 32 acres of land it currently holds under contract. The site is highly visible from Interstate 70 and close to the I-70 / SR 46 interchange. The site is approximately one hour west of Indianapolis and less than 100 miles from Champaign-Urbana and Decatur , Illinois, as well as Lafayette, Indiana.

The design offered by Full House is unique in several ways. The hotel is elevated above an interior green landscape, in a shape resembling a “happy smile”. The majority of the rooms are located on the upper floors and enjoy an extended view. At the top of the hotel is a pool deck and restaurant, overlooking the Wabash Valley. Along the nearby busy highway, Full House plans to build a large greenhouse, providing a lush indoor environment. Inside the greenhouse, the project would include two restaurants offering “al fresco” dining, even in winter, as well as venues for weddings and other group events. The world-class casino would be located between the hotel and the greenhouse and would offer approximately 1,000 slot machines, 50 table games and a state-of-the-art sports betting site. At the top of the casino, the Company planned a solar power farm, which would provide green and sustainable power for a portion of the complex’s electrical needs.

“After several years of studying Terre Haute and neighboring communities, we believe we have designed a unique destination that will make Indiana residents proud,” said Daniel R. Lee, President and CEO of Full House Resorts . “American Place was designed to be a world-class entertainment facility that will bring new jobs and income to Terre Haute, Vigo County and the State of Indiana.

“We have been licensed in good standing in Indiana for many years, where we own and operate the Rising Star Casino Resort and Golf Course at Rising Sun, which opened in 1996,” said Mr. Lee . “This project would allow us to leverage our experience and our database in Indiana, with cross-marketing opportunities with Rising Star. It will also provide career advancement opportunities within Indiana for our Rising Sun team members, while allowing us to form the new Terre Haute team with experienced game staff in Indiana. “

Alex J. Stolyar, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer, added Alex J. Stolyar: “Since we started exploring gaming opportunities five years ago, we have seen how the citizens of Terre Haute and Vigo County were eager to attract a world-class gaming destination. We are delighted to bring our groundbreaking development to the residents and community leaders who have so patiently awaited and supported us. “
