Full House In Ind.

Las Vegas-based Full House Resorts is buying the Grand Victoria Casino and Resort in southern Indiana for $43 million.

Full House expects to buy the casino, along with its 201-room hotel and golf course, from Chicago-based HGMI Gaming Inc.

Full House said it expects to close on the deal for the Ohio River casino in early 2011 after gaining approval from regulators.

Grand Victoria, competing with three casinos in southeastern Indiana, saw its admissions drop nearly 12 percent to about 1.4 million for the year ending June 30.
