Ameristar Casino East Chicago is a casino located in East Chicago, Indiana. It is currently owned by Ameristar Casinos.

History

The casino was originally founded by Showboat Casinos as Showboat East Chicago. In 1998, Harrah's Entertainment bought Showboats Casinos, renamed Showboat East Chicago to Harrah's East Chicago, and later sold it to Resorts International Holdings. The casino's name was changed along with the street name to 777 Resort Blvd. (like some Harrah’s branded casinos 777 Harrah’s Blvd). It was later sold in 2007 to Ameristar Casinos and changed its name to Ameristar before the September 2008 deadline.
