Rising Star Casino Resort

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (wikipedia.org)

Rising Star Casino Resort (previously the Grand Victoria Casino & Resort) is a riverboat casino and hotel in Rising Sun, Indiana, USA, owned and operated by Full House Resorts.

History

The Indiana Gaming Commission in June 1995 selected a Hyatt-affiliated project in Rising Sun to receive a riverboat gaming license.

The Grand Victoria II casino opened in October 1996.

The Grand Victoria opened a 200-room hotel and an entertainment pavilion in July 1997, with a grand opening ceremony hosted by Robin Leach and Rich Little.

Hyatt decided in 2006 to sell the Grand Victoria. In 2011, Full House Resorts purchased the property for $43 million, and renamed it as the Rising Star Casino Resort.

A second hotel with 104 rooms, the $8-million North Star Tower, was opened at the site in December 2013.
