Key Takeaways

  • WarHorse Casino Omaha is gearing up to launch its permanent venue in August 2024, enhancing the gaming scene in Nebraska.
  • Since September 2022, a temporary casino in Lincoln has been serving local gamers, awaiting the grand opening of the permanent locations.

OMAHA, Neb. – Mark your calendars, gaming enthusiasts! The WarHorse Casino in Omaha is on track to unveil its permanent establishment on August 6, 2024, promising to elevate the gaming experience in Nebraska to new heights. Following the success of its temporary setup in Lincoln since 2022, WarHorse is ready to introduce over 900 gaming positions at its much-anticipated Omaha location.

Lynne McNally, the CEO of the Nebraska Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association (NHBPA), has shared the exciting news, highlighting that the opening is subject to final approvals from the Nebraska Racing and Gaming Commission. With a budget of $250 million, the facility is not just about the numbers; it's set to become a full-fledged entertainment hub. Alongside the thrill of 20 table games and 800 slot machines, visitors can look forward to parimutuel wagering, a sportsbook, and dining options, all complemented by an ample parking space.

Not to be outdone, WarHorse is also in the midst of constructing a casino at Lincoln’s Race Course, poised to be a parallel investment in the region's gaming and entertainment landscape. Despite its smaller scale, with 430 slots and a more limited array of Nebraska blackjack tables, the Lincoln venue has its unique attractions, including a 220-room hotel and a signature steakhouse.

The Lincoln temporary location, despite its modest 400 slot machines, has been a financial success, generating a remarkable $51.5 million in gross gaming revenue last year. This figure is a testament to Nebraska's potential as a gaming revenue powerhouse, a potential that will likely be realized fully once the two WarHorse permanent venues swing their doors open in August and later in the fall.

Every gaming establishment in Nebraska must be adjacent to an active race track, a requirement that adds a unique flavor to the state's gaming scene. Horsemen’s Park is set to host a live race on September 29, while Lincoln Race Course will have its share of the action with four racing days in September. Beyond the allure of live dealer blackjack, these venues are prepared to entertain with both live and simulcast racing, offering a comprehensive gaming and entertainment experience.

WarHorse Casino Omaha is not just about expanding gaming options; it's about enriching the cultural and entertainment landscape of Nebraska. As the countdown to August 2024 begins, anticipation builds for what promises to be a landmark moment for gamers and entertainment seekers across the region.
