The convention and meeting space at the casino resort received upgrades such as new wall fixtures and sconces, imported carpeting, and new seating. Other aspects that were included in Belterra’s $15 million, three year improvement project include hotel room renovation, the addition of three new restaurants, as well as cosmetic updates to the casino floor and updated common areas. The casino resort also has Wi-Fi internet access, which it claims is faster that many other convention spaces or hotels in the region, at speeds up to 100 megabits per second.
The continued investment in the property looks to have been the right move for Belterra owner Pinnacle Entertainment. Of competing riverboats in southeast Indiana, Belterra Casino saw an increase in revenue of 5.5 percent from 2014, while others saw less. Last year Belterra’s gaming revenue was $108.3 million.
