LAKE CHARLES, La. — Caesars Entertainment Inc. plans to reinvent Isle of Capri Lake Charles into an all new resort with new features, games, food and more.

Caesars announced plans to bring the Lake Charles resort ashore and transform the property into the all new Horseshoe Casino Lake Charles in a Saturday media release.

Preliminary plans for the resort include more than 60,000 square feet of casino space, close to 1,000 slot machines and table games, a live poker room with 10 tables, a completely redesigned hotel tower with rooms inspired by local scenery and more.

“We are excited to return to operations in Lake Charles in fall 2022 with an all-new resort experience, introducing our iconic Horseshoe brand,” Tom Reeg, CEO of Caesars Entertainment, said in a Caesar Entertainment media release. “Our growing pledge to Louisiana and the region’s growth continues with this investment, and we are proud to lead in the recovery of Lake Charles and its community.”

Caesars is the parent company of Isle of Capri Lake Charles. Isle of Capri Lake Charles was forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic and damage from Hurricane Laura in 2020. Casino officials said they had no idea that once Isle of Capri shut down, it would not reopen again for two years.

“Between the pandemic and the destruction wrought by Hurricane Laura, the challenges our Team Members have faced are unparalleled,” Jeff Favre, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Isle of Capri Lake Charles, said in the release. “I'm thrilled to take this dynamic step forward toward getting our Team Members back to work serving our guests.”

According to the release, construction should be complete by fall 2022.
