Gaming Commission Approves Tropicana Move to Land


Evansville’s downtown casino is moving from water to land.

The Indiana Gaming Commission approves Tropicana Evansville’s planned move from the riverboat to Riverside Dr.

Tropicana officials released the land-based casino plans last November after the Indiana General Assembly gave final approval to a bill allowing current riverboat casinos to move to land-based sites.

The casino is expected to double in size and construction could begin in the spring.

If construction begins by spring, expected completion would be in late 2017.
