Caesars strikes deal for Harrah’s Nebraska casino

Caesars Entertainment has reached an agreement with horse racing operator Columbus Exposition and Racing (CER) to build and operate a Harrah’s property in Nebraska.


Expected to be completed by late 2022, the casino and racetrack development will cost around $75m.

As well as a one mile horse racing track, the development will also consist of a 40,000 square foot casino containing over 400 slot machines, 20 table games, a restaurant and retail space.

“We are excited to welcome Harrah’s to Nebraska,” CER managing partner Tom Jackson commented. “When looking for a casino operator partner, Harrah’s brand recognition and established code of commitment to its employees, customers and the communities in which they operate proved an easy selection.”
