Cherokee tribe to buy casino, reports say

A Southern Indiana casino may soon find itself under the ownership of a federally reognized Native American tribe that runs casinos in North Carolina.

According to reports from both Casino.org and Smoky Mountain News, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians tribal council on Thursday approved a $280 million purchase of Caesars Southern Indiana, which is a 25-minute drive away from Louisville in Elizabeth.

Representatives from the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and Caesars each declined to comment when reached by The Courier Journal by phone Wednesday.

There is no archived footage of the meeting Thursday or one on Dec. 15 where the matter had been discussed on the official government website of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

As a result of a $17.3 billion sale to Reno-based Eldorado Resorts, Caesars Entertainment must reach an agreement to sell the Southern Indiana casino by Dec. 31, according to Casino.org.
