Winnebago Tribe forms new casino subsidiary

Ho-Chunk Inc, the economic development subsidiary of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, has incorporated a new enterprise named WarHorse Gaming LLC. The new company will partner with the Nebraska Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association (HBPA) in developing three new casinos at the racetracks in Omaha, Lincoln and South Sioux City. The casino operations will be managed by WarHorse Gaming

Nebraska voters approved a constitutional amendment to repeal the state ban on casino gambling in last month's election. WarHorse Gaming and the HBPA are hoping to open some limited amount of casino gaming later in 2021 with full-casino operations opening in 2022.

The new casinos will be added to Horsemen's Park in Omaha, Lincoln Racecourse in Lincoln, and Atokad in South Sioux City.

2020 Election: Nebraska voters approve casino gambling

November 8, 2020

Nebraska voters approved three ballot measures this week to allow casino gambling at the horse racing tracks in Nebraska. The votes averaged two to one in favor of the "Keep the Money in Nebraska" campaign.

A major supporter and donor to "Keep the Money in Nebraska" was Ho-Chunk Inc., an economic development company owned by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. Ho-Chunk plans to build new casinos at existing racetracks in South Sioux, Omaha and Lincoln. Ho-Chunk has formed a new company, WarHorse Gaming LCC, to manage these three casinos.

Construction could begin as early as Spring 2021. It is expected to take six months to open casino gambling at Lincoln and Omaha where existing buildings already exist. There is no building at Atokad racetrack near South Sioux. That location will take nine months to open the casino.

Nebraska Supreme Court allows casino measures on Nov 3 ballot

September 15, 2020

The State Supreme Court overruled Secretary of State Bob Evnen's decision to block three pro-gambling initiatives from the Nov ballot. In a 4-3 decision the Court ruling will place the issues on the Nov. ballot for voters to decide whether or not to authorize casino gambling at Nebraska horse tracks.

If voter approve the casino measure, the state constitution will be amended. This will indirectly allow Native American tribes to also become eligible for Class III casino gambling under the U.S. Indian Gaming Regulatory Act.

The "Keep the Money in Nebraska" campaign is sponsored by the Nebraska Horsemen's Benevolent & Protective Association, Omaha Exposition and Racing and the Winnebago Tribe's Ho-Chunk Inc.

Nebraska pulls casino measure from Nov 3 ballot

September 4, 2020

Secretary of State Bob Evnen has blocked the "Keep the Money in Nebraska (KMN)" casino measure from the November ballot after reviewing the wordage in the voter petition submitted in July with 475,000 signatures.

The measure would have authorized Nebraska racetracks to add Class III casino gambling. Class III gambling is defined by the U.S. Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) as "house-banked" games, such as slot machines and table games.

If passed this November, the Nebraska Indian casinos would indirectly qualify for Class III gaming too under the federal IGRA law. Secretary Evnen cited this issue as the reason for stopping the ballot measure since it is not explicitly mentioned in the measure.

There are currently five tribal casinos. Each operates under Class I and II gaming rules.

Iron Horse Bar & Casino - Class I & II casino
1010 S. Main Street, Emerson, NE 68733-3654

Lucky 77 Casino - Class I & II casino
200 Main St, Walthill, NE 68067

Native Star Casino - Class I & II casino
Highway 77, Winnebago, NE

Ohiya Casino - Class I & II casino
52946 Highway 12, Niobrara, NE 68760

Prairie Flower Casino - Class I & II casino
1031 Ave H, Carter Lake, IA 51510

Ho-Chunk Inc., the development company of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska, plans to sue the State of Nebraska for pulling the measure. Ho-Chunk is supported by the Nebraska Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association which represents the state's six racetracks. The tracks are located in Grand Island, Lincoln, Omaha, Columbus, Hastings, and South Sioux City.
