LAWRENCEBURG, IN (WFIE) - The new Hollywood Casino opened on the Ohio River in Lawrenceburg, Indiana.

Showgirls performed as the casino officially welcomed gamblers.

The casino actually opened Thursday.

Since then, employees have been making sure that everything was operational for today's grand opening.

The casino is built on a large boat anchored on the Ohio River.

It's twice the size of the old Argosy Casino it replaced.
