Three groups hoping to develop a land-based casino in the Sioux City area have submitted bids to state gambling regulators.

The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission's deadline for applications for Woodbury County's gambling license was Monday.

Penn National Gaming Co., which operates the Argosy Sioux City riverboat, has submitted two proposals for a Hollywood Casino. One is in downtown Sioux City. The other is on the southern edge of the city.

Ho-Chunk Inc. has proposed the Warrior Casino and Hotel in downtown Sioux City. The third group is Sioux City Entertainment, developer of the proposed Hard Rock Casino also in downtown.

State regulators decided to replace the riverboat casino with a land-based casino and put the license up for bid. The commission is to award the license in April.
