Ameristar Casino HotelAmeristar Casino Hotel East Chicago has opened its new 15,000-square foot $6 million landside high-limit slots and table games room, located inside its pavilion area.

The new landside gaming area opens as the casino continues its $15 million renovation to its four-level casino gaming floor, which is scheduled to be completed by October.

Indiana’s Ameristar is the first Northwest Indiana casino to take advantage of a 2015 Indiana law, which allows the state's casinos to move a part of its gaming operations to land, the company said in a statement. The Indiana Gaming Commission approved Ameristar’s proposed gaming transition last November.

The new high limit room, which is accessed by a private entrance, features 95 slot machines with all new bases and chairs; 14 table games, including 12 Blackjack and two Baccarat tables; two food stations and a full bar, all new audio speakers and high-definition televisions; personalized service 24/7 with a dedicated cage and myChoice window, and private restrooms.

Ameristar Casino Hotel East Chicago, which is owned by Pinnacle Entertainment, features a 71,000 square-foot casino; a full-service hotel with 288 rooms and suites; a fitness center; three dining venues; two lounges; and 5,400 square-feet of meeting and event space.
