(Sioux City, IA) — Iowa casinos on the western side of the state now facing some competition from Nebraska, as the Warhorse Casino in Lincoln is now operating after approval from state regulators.

CEO Lance Morgan says they are going to stop some of the money moving out of Nebraska into Iowa. They started with slot machines in a building in Lincoln and will build that up and also plan to build a casino in Omaha and eventually South Sioux City.
