WarHorse Gaming is a division of Ho-Chunk, Inc., the award-winning economic development corporation of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. WarHorse Gaming operates the WarHorse Casino, Lincoln (now open) and will operate the WarHorse Casino, Omaha (opening 2024). Both are in partnership with the Nebraska Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association (HBPA). WarHorse Gaming will also operate WarHorse Casino in South Sioux City (opening TBD).

Phase one in Lincoln opened September 24th, 2022, featuring over 9,000 square feet including 433 slot machines along with simulcast and live horse racing. 

WarHorse Gaming Lincoln’s next phase of construction will begin shortly after the Omaha facility’s construction starts. The expansion will double the size of the current facility and add an additional 500 parking stalls at the casino and racetrack. The expanded facility will feature 870 slot machines, six to ten table games, and an expanded dining area for customers. The Lincoln facility’s second phase is planned to take about one year to complete. Subsequent construction phases will see the buildout of the full gaming floor, parking garage, event center, and 220 room hotel.

WarHorse Gaming Omaha will feature roughly 1,300 slots and 20 tables games once complete, of which more than 800 will be available when the first phase of the casino opens about a year after the start of construction. The buildout also includes a parking garage that can accommodate all phases of the casino.

Once fully constructed, WarHorse Gaming Lincoln will employ more than 500 people and generate roughly $14 million in tax revenue for the State of Nebraska.
