The WVXU News Department presents a special series on the opening of the new Horseshoe Casino, exploring issues like security, parking, development around the area, gambling addiction, and much more.

Parking Plan announced for Horseshoe Casino

Horseshoe Casino customers will be able to park for free from six at night to six in the morning when the casino opens March 5th. 

In a release, the casino says you can also park for free on weekends.  Weekday parking will be free for guests who play slots or table games for 30 minutes or an hour of poker or spend at least $25 in a restaurant or gift shop.  Otherwise hourly rates will cost from a dollar for the first hour to a daily maximum of 14 dollars.  Hotel shuttles will also be available.

The 2500 space garage will not be open during the grand opening on March 4th, but free parking and shuttles will be available at the Banks garage.
