Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on March 17, 2011


Elizabeth, IN (March 15, 2011, 3:00 pm EDT) – The Casino and Pavilion at Horseshoe Southern Indiana will reopen to customers at 10:00 am tomorrow, Wednesday March 16, 2011.  In addition to re-opening the casino, the Paula Deen Buffet, Jack Binions Steakhouse, JBs Café and Legends Restaurants will also re-open.  Employees will soon begin receiving notification that they are to begin reporting to work at 5:00 am on Wednesday the 16th to start working on the procedures and steps necessary to re-open the property to customers.  Customers will begin receiving notification of the casino reopening via phone, email, internet and social media.

“We couldn’t be more excited to re-open the casino and pavilion so that we can be back together again with our wonderful employees and loyal Horseshoe customers.  We’ve been in touch with our employees and customers daily since closing.  Everyone has been so interested in when we will re-open” said Eileen Moore, the General Manager at Horseshoe. 

“We quickly gained approval for our decision to pay employees their wages plus tips and benefits for the duration of the closure.  This is just one of the reasons we were recently named as a 2011 Top Places to Work by The Courier Journal.  We didn’t want our employees to worry about the impact of this closure on their personal lives.  I am so proud to work for a company that has the fortitude to make these decisions so quickly” said Moore.  Caesars Entertainment, formerly Harrah’s Entertainment, has a history of paying employees during closures due to Force Majeure .   For example, the company paid employees when its New Orleans and Biloxi casinos were closed due to Hurricane Katrina.

The hotel at Horseshoe will remain closed until the river reaches the level at which it is safe to allow employees and customers back into the Hotel.
