Gambling addiction assembly

Postby Narg В» 10.06.2019


Indiana law authorizes ten land-based or riverboat casinos on Lake Michigan and the Ohio River , one land-based casino in French Lick , and racinos at the state's two horse tracks. In addition, there is one Indian casino in the state. The Indiana Constitution of included a ban on lotteries, [1] which was broadly construed by courts as a prohibition on gambling in general. The Hoosier Lottery sells scratch-off tickets since October It is a member of the Multi-State Lottery Association since It joined Mega Millions in and Cash4Life in Pari-mutuel betting was legalized in Hoosier Park opened in Anderson in , and off-track betting parlors opened in the state in Indiana Downs opened in Shelbyville in Hoosier Park became a racino on and Indiana Downs did the same in Critics of lottery legalization said the measure would lead to casino gambling, [4] while legislators said there would be little support for casinos.

Within months of the amendment's passage, Gary mayor Thomas Barnes proposed opening up the economically depressed city to high-rise resort casinos. Gaming companies from Nevada and Atlantic City flocked to join in lobbying efforts to support a second attempt in the legislative session, [12] but it was blocked by Senate Republican leaders. Charlie Brown of Gary introduced an expanded bill authorizing riverboat casinos on the Ohio River and a casino in the resort area of French Lick and West Baden Springs , to attract broader support.

The proposal passed the House but was rejected by a Senate committee. Brown introduced a Gary casino bill in the session, but it drew little support due to legislators' aversion to controversy in an election year. With new backing from Republican entrepreneur Dean White , [24] Brown reintroduced his bill in the session, with land-based casinos in Gary and French Lick, and riverboats on the Ohio River, and it passed the House, [25] but was again voted down in Senate committee.

Because it failed to approve a budget, [28] the Assembly convened for a special session in June The first round of gaming license applications in September attracted 27 proposals for sites in 12 cities. February 2, was the application deadline for licenses in the communities where referendums had passed; by that day, the number of applications had risen to City leaders examined 25 proposals in Gary, [36] 6 in Evansville , [37] and 8 in Lawrenceburg.

After the Porter County referendum failed, several businessmen from Portage had sued the state, arguing that the riverboat law violated the state constitution's ban on special treatment for particular cities, because it called for citywide votes in Hammond and East Chicago, but countywide votes in all other localities.

Four more local referendums were held in , with Crawford , Harrison , and Perry counties approving casinos, and Jefferson County rejecting them.

The Gaming Commission issued its first preliminary licenses, for the two boats in Gary, in December Development of the Gary boats was delayed by disputes over the acquisition of land at Buffington Harbor and the withdrawal of President Casinos from its partnership with Barden.

The Gaming Commission continued its work in , approving in January the only applicant for the East Chicago license, a group led by Showboat, Inc. With three Ohio River casinos set to open, the Gaming Commission postponed a decision on granting the fifth Ohio River license to Crawford or Switzerland County, deciding to wait to observe the results of the other casinos. By May , the two Cincinnati-area casinos were reporting strong results, so the commission decided to lift its unofficial moratorium on issuing a fifth license.

Caesars Indiana finally opened in November The Patoka Lake license went unused because the Army Corps of Engineers , which claims ownership of the reservoir, [70] had a regulation against gambling on its property. A law passed in allowed the state's two racetracks, Hoosier Park and Indiana Downs , to install up to 2, slot machines each. In , the legislature amended the casino law to allow the state's riverboat casinos to move into land-based facilities on their existing sites, to help them remain competitive with casinos in neighboring states.

Joseph River Valley of northern Indiana and southwestern Michigan, regained federal recognition in , [78] and its members soon voted to pursue casino gaming as an economic development measure. In , the Indiana legislature approved the legalization of sports gambling starting in September. The state will collect a 9. Only professional and college sports competitions are allowed to be gambled on.
