The Majestic Star II (formerly known as the Trump Casino) was located in Gary, Indiana. It was a floating casino that overlooks Lake Michigan in Gary's Buffington Harbor. It was owned by Majestic Star Holdings.

History[edit]

Prior to 2005, the Trump Casino was owned by New York-based Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts. A Trump Hotel adjoined the property. In December 2005 The Trump Organization sold the casino and hotel to Majestic, which operated the immediately adjacent Majestic Star Casino.[1][2]

The two Majestic Star casinos closed in April, 2021. One license was transferred to the Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana, located inland in Gary.[1][3]
