Centaur Gaming is the latest to celebrate the passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act with a special announcement for its Indiana employees.

On Wednesday, Jim Brown, Centaur’s president and COO, announced that all Centaur staff, including returning seasonal employees, would receive a one-time $500 bonus check beginning this week.

Centaur Gaming owns both Indiana Grand Racing & Casino in Shelbyville and Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in Anderson as well as Winner’s Circle Pub & OTB in Indianapolis, Winner’s Circle OTB & VooDoo BBQ & Grill in New Haven/Fort Wayne, and Winner’s Circle OTB in Clarksville.

Brown, speaking on behalf of Rod Ratcliff, Centaur’s founder, chairman and CEO, read a message from Ratcliff, who was unable to attend the announcement ceremony at Indiana Grand.

“It gives us great joy to announce Centaur Gaming’s Bet on America initiative in celebration of the passing of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” said Brown. “Centaur Gaming has the utmost confidence in the future of our country and we firmly believe this important tax cut and job legislation will have a positive effect on the gaming and racing industry in Indiana, as well as the American economy in general.
