The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska has set a date for a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Prairie Flower Casino in Carter Lake. The ribbon cutting will be held at 9:00 AM on Thursday, November 1st.
The ribbon cutting ceremony will occur just hours before the casino officially opens. At Noon on Thursday, the Prairie Flower Casino will officially open its doors to the public and will feature 200 slot-style games. Table games will not be present at the casino. After its opening, the Prairie Flower Casino will be open 24 hours a day, Monday through Sunday.
Ponca Tribe officials say the Prairie Flower Casino will contribute $775,000 per year to Carter Lake to support police, fire and emergency responders, and for general community improvement. Officials say proceeds from casino gaming will also help support programs and services for the Tribal citizens. That support includes a 60,000 square foot health care clinic near Ralston, job training, continuing education, land preservation and cultural arts.
The Prairie Flower Casino expects to initially hire approximately 100 individuals to staff the facility. The casino is located at 1031 Avenue H in Carter Lake, Iowa.
