We’re betting on a good time at the state’s newest casino.

The gaming floor of the Terre Haute Casino Resort opens Friday, April 5.

The 400,000-square-foot facility will feature a 122-room luxury hotel, an event center, 1,000 slot machines, 35 live table games, a poker room and a sportsbook at which to place wagers on various sports competitions.

There’ll be plenty of places to dine and drink at the Vigo County resort, about 70 miles southwest of downtown Indianapolis.

An opening celebration starts with a ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m., followed by live entertainment, giveaways and promotions throughout the day.

The property is owned by Kentucky Derby parent Churchill Downs. The company has more than two dozen casino and gambling spots. This is its first in Indiana.

Here’s what to expect:

The Terre Haute Casino Resort will have five restaurants and six bars.

Restaurants include:

  • The regionally-inspired Four Cornered Steakhouse
  • The Queen’s Beans Coffee Shop

Slots, table and a sportsbook might pay off guests.

Bring money.

Chances for winning, or losing, at the 24-hour casino can be found at:

  • 1,000 slot machines, including video poker
  • 36 live table games, including poker, blackjack, craps and roulette 

The Terre Haute Casino Resort hotel will open later.

The grand opening of the property hotel, along with its rooftop lounge, won’t be until May 15. 

The hotel will have 122 rooms and a pool.
