Eldorado Resorts Inc. has won the backing of state regulators to take full control of a Shreveport casino-hotel in a $9.2 million deal with a bondholders group.
Reno, Nev.-based Eldorado will acquire the group's 23.6 percent interest in the complex. The Louisiana Gaming Control Board approved the deal Tuesday.

Penn National put the casino up for sale after negotiations with bondholders failed.
