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.
