Along with the closure of "The Boat," Max & Erma's and Hoosier's Lounge will also cease operations.

Casino Aztar opened its doors in December of 1995 in Evansville, Indiana introducing casino-style gaming to the Hoosier state.

Today, Casino Aztar has become one of Evansville’s largest employers with almost 950 team members and has established itself as a leading corporate citizen.

Over the past 17 years, Casino Aztar has invested over $212 million into the development of their Riverfront Park location with many milestone developments: Riverfront Pavilion in 1996; Casino Aztar Hotel in 1996; Aztar Executive Conference Center in 2004; and $40 million Entertainment District featuring the Le Merigot Hotel, Blush Ultralounge and restaurant venues in 2006.

In 2010, Casino Aztar emerged from bankruptcy from former owner Columbia Sussex with a new company -- Tropicana Entertainment, Inc.

At that time, the City of Evansville formed a new relationship with Tropicana Entertainment, Inc.

And ushered in a new era of prosperity for Casino Aztar.

Additional improvements of hundreds of new slot and gaming machines, a pedestrian bridge connecting the boutique Le Merigot hotel directly with the gaming floor and pavilion amenities, and a recent renovation to the Casino Aztar Hotel worth more than $6 million have been highlights of a capital investment plan over the last three years that has totaled over $19.3 million.
