Ponca Tribe Casino -- Carter Lake

Potentially big legal decision allowing a casino in Carter Lake. Mentions of 2000 slot machines and 50 tables along with a 150 room hotel. I haven't done a ton of digging, but it looks like it may be planned for the empty lot next to the new Casey's.

The problem is that the casinos in Iowa are not doing good right now. They look dead to me compared to when they opened. This new casino in Omaha may be walking into a dead market. Other then that little problem they could make millions.

The lot next to Casey's is owned by the Omaha tribe. This lot is 3 blocks south and 2 blocks west of that.

I'm sure the PTB for CET and Pinnacle will fight this with all they have. Ditto for the Omaha Keno (is Keno a common or a proper noun?) industry!

If Ponca can do it, then the Omaha's can't be far behind.
