LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An early Christmas present for those of you who like to gamble across the river at Horseshoe Southern Indiana: Its new land-based casino is opening next month. 

The $90 million renovation project is nearing completion at 11999 Casino Center Dr. SE in Elizabeth, Indiana, and will open to the public on Thursday, Dec. 12, according to a news release from the casino. 

The new 110,000-square-foot venue will feature a sportsbook, a VIP Lounge and the Piazza, which will have five restaurants.

"It will be a one-level gaming experience. Everything will feel revived and modern," said general manager Brad Seigel. "(Everything) will be right next to the parking garage."

The old riverboat casino, which has hosted gamblers since 1998, will sail into the sunset with a Bon Voyage Party from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30. The celebration of the Glory of Rome will be free and open to the public ages 21 and older, a casino spokesperson said.
