President Casino closes for good

St. Louis Business Journal,  Thursday, June 24, 2010 at 8:48:24 PM

After decades along the Mississippi Riverfront, the President Casino aboard the Admiral riverboat has closed for good.

The owner of the Laclede's Landing casino, Las Vegas-based Pinnacle Entertainment, has planned to close the President this Tuesday after receiving pressure from gaming regulators about the property's poor financial performance.

But the casino was shut down June 17 due to floodwaters, and operators announced Thursday that they would not reopen it. More than 200 people are out of work, and St. Louis will lose about $2 million in tax revenue generated by the President Casino. the source

Pinnacle seeks hearing on plan to close President Casino

St. Louis Business Journal,  Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at 1:39:26 PM

Pinnacle Entertainment has filed a request for a hearing to dispute Missouri gaming regulators' plans to close the financially ailing President Casino in downtown St. Louis.

The Las Vegas-based casino operator made the request Friday, said Mack Bradley, a Pinnacle spokesman.

President Casino cut its hours and operations amid losses from repeated flooding-related closures and increased competition from its sister casino nearby, Pinnacle's Lumiere Place. Pinnacle had wanted to repair or replace the President's Admiral riverboat in order to keep the gaming license, which became even more valuable in 2008, when voters capped the numbers of licenses statewide to 13. the source
