Evansville City Council says yes to moving Tropicana Casino on land

Posted: Updated:
EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Evansville City Council passed a resolution supporting land based gaming on Monday.

Now they hope to change state law moving the casino off the river.

Councilwoman Missy Mosby says land-based gaming would open up property taxes and could potentially increase revenue for the casino.

If the casino moved on land the LST-325 could potentially dock where the riverboat now sits, giving visitors better access to the war ship.
