It’s been five years since Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Ind., opened its roomy, glitzy, amenity-laden new barge, the $500 million facility that before opening was referred to internally as Project MOAB, for Mother of All Boats.
The project didn’t stop with opening. Operating a successful casino means constant freshening and upgrading. The latest upgrade at Horseshoe is a new high-limit slot room, opened Aug. 8 on the casino’s fifth anniversary.
The highest-grossing casino in the Chicago area, Horseshoe has had strong play among high-end players both on tables and slots right from the beginning. The new high-limit room has been designed for player comfort, and has added some of the most popular games in dollar-and-up denominations.
Among the games added:
** New $1 WMS video titles, including Colossal Reels, Zeus, Kronos and Queen of the Wild. All have proven their popularity among high-limit players in Las Vegas and Atlantic City.
** From IGT, under its license with Action Gaming, comes All-Star Poker. It’s loaded with IGT/Action’s most popular multi-hand video poker games, all for dollar-and-up play. Touch the icons on the screen to choose among Ultimate X, Super Times Pay, Double Super Times Pay, Spin Poker and others.
** New $1 5-reel, 9-line IGT stepper slots with classic title including Double Gold and Triple Lucky 7’s.
