Resorts Casino Opens Today in Chi-town

The newly named Resorts casino opens at 6 p.m. today, its decks swabbed clean of any sign of former owner Harrah's.

Casino staff overseen by Indiana Gaming Commission auditors stripped the casino of everything Harrah's, from the green felt material that covers gaming tables to poker chips and tokens.

The felts, like everything else in the casino, must reflect the name of the new owner, gaming commission spokesperson Jennifer Arnold said.

The riverboat parked on East Chicago's lakefront is being sold as part of a $1.24 billion deal to Resorts owner Colony Capital LLC, a Los Angeles-based real estate firm which also owns the Resorts Atlantic City casino.
