Gary Willing To Trade One Casino For The Relocation Of Another Casino

Last updated on Tuesday, September 15, 2009

(GARY, IN) - Gary says it’s willing to give up one of its two casinos if the state will let it move the other one downtown.

Detroit-based Majestic Star owns both Gary riverboats.

City officials believe a single casino near the junction of I-65 and I-80/94 would bring in more money than the two lakefront boats combined.

Majestic Star president Don Barden argues the only reason the casinos were confined to the water in the first place was to keep the gambling industry at arm's length.
