The original Horseshoe was started by Benny Binion on Las Vegas’ Fremont Street in 1951, and Caesars now owns Horseshoe casinos in several states, including Iowa, Indiana, Maryland and Mississippi. The casino giant, which also owns Las Vegas’ famous Caesars Palace, Flamingo, Paris, Harrah’s and others, says it’s time for Horseshoe to return home.
“Bringing the Horseshoe brand back to life in Las Vegas allows us to celebrate both our history and our future,” said Sean McBurney, Regional President of Caesars Entertainment. “2022 marks the start of a new era for Caesars Entertainment Empire in Las Vegas, an era heralded by the return of Horseshoe.”
EXTENSION OF SPORT WATER, GAME LICENSES THAT LEAD TO QUESTIONS
Just around the time construction is set to begin at Bally’s location on the “50-yard line” of the strip, the new Horseshoe will welcome back an old tradition started by the legendary brand: Host of the 53rd World Series of Poker, scheduled for May 31-19. July.
“The World Series of Poker first started at Las Vegas’ original Horseshoe in 1970, so it’s a natural commitment to return to the newly transformed Horseshoe Las Vegas,” Jason Gregorec, SVP and general manager of Horseshoe Las Vegas, told FOX Business in a statement. “This is an important milestone for the prestigious gaming event, as the WSOP will be held on the famous Las Vegas Strip for the first time.”
