Carter Lake Casino seeing success in first few months

Last November, the Prairie Flower Casino in Carter Lake opened. The controversial casino remains in court proceedings over its legality. That hasn’t stopped it from opening its doors and welcoming customers.

“It’s got lots of nice machines, lots of friendly people that work here, and it’s enjoyable,” Michelle Busch said. “I like it.”

It’s been a busy 10 weeks for Carter Lake’s newest attraction.

“There’s always cars out here and it’s really proven that more entertainment was needed for the Carter Lake area and more options,” Ponca Tribe of Nebraska Chairman Larry Wright Jr. said.
