JOHNSTON, Iowa (AP) Gambling will shift from the Missouri River to a Council Bluffs hotel under a plan approved by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.

The Des Moines Register reports the commission backed the plan Thursday at a meeting in Johnston.

The new casino will move from a riverboat to the first floor of Harrah's Hotel, replacing a convention center. It will have 600 slot machines and 20 casino tables.

The boat will be put up for sale.

KCCI-TV reports the commission also approved an $8.5 million expansion at Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino in the Des Moines suburb of Altoona.
