RISING SUN, IN--(Marketwired - December 01, 2016) - Santa has returned with a one-of-a-kind, bigger and better holiday season experience with the "Christmas Casino" at Rising Star Resort, in Rising Sun, Indiana, which has been transformed into a whimsical, winter wonderland again this holiday season, now through January 2, 2017.

A live reindeer CAM is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day at http://thechristmascasino.com/reindeer-cam.htm. Visitors to the Christmas Casino will first see Santa's Stables, where eight live reindeer greet guests.
