Tomorrow the name change becomes official...Casino Aztar becomes Tropicana Evansville with a press conference in the Tropicana Hotel lobby tomorrow morning, Friday, June 14 at 11 a.m.  Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will be on hand for the press conference.

Tropicana Entertainment, Inc., based in Las Vegas, Nevada, is a publicly traded company that owns and operates eight casinos and resorts in Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey and Aruba.

General Manager Ward Shaw commented that, "This exciting transition will better leverage the 'Tropicana' brand to attract new guests from outlying regions, as well as symbolize the continued guest improvements that we've made over the last several years for those customers that haven't visited us in some time."
