    Big decisions are expected this week for the future of Vigo County’s casino.

    This Wednesday, the Indiana Gaming Commission is expected to select one of four companies for a casino license. Before that happens, the gaming commission has a couple of other items on the agenda.

    Lucy Luck and the settlement

    Lucy Luck Gaming is one of the items on the Monday afternoon agenda. More specifically, it says, “Settlement Offer made pursuant 68IAC 7-1-15(a).”

    How did we get here?
    In June, News 10 reported the Indiana Gaming Commission denied Lucy Luck’s request to renew its gaming license for Vigo County. In doing that, the application process reopened.

    The commission, at the time, said Lucy Luck did not have an executive team in place to run the casino. The commission also said casino operations were not fully funded.

    Terre Haute businessman Greg Gibson is the chairman of Lucy Luck. Both Gibson and a lawyer for Lucy Luck refuted those claims.
