Harrah's is planning to decommission its Missouri River riverboat casino and move the games inside its nearby hotel in Council Bluffs.

Harrah's general manager Bo Guidry says that the aging boat costs too much to keep running.

Guidry says the hotel's main floor convention center would be turned into a casino with a new restaurant and bar. Around 20 table games and 600 slot machines would be moved from the boat to the new casino.

The plans are pending approval by directors of Caesars' Entertainment, which owns Harrah's, and the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.

Guidry says that, with their approval, reconstruction could begin in January and be finished by summer.
