Mississippi casino to adopt Isle of Capri brand
Monday, June 11, 2012
VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) — The Rainbow Casino in Vicksburg will take on the Isle of Capri brand next year, the owners say.
The Vicksburg Post reports (http://bit.ly/L4Luk5) that the information was contained in the St. Louis-based gaming and entertainment company's quarterly financial report.
The change will take effect by the end of October 2013.
Completion of the $5 million list of renovations under way and upgraded amenities will coincide with the end of the second quarter of Isle of Capri's fiscal year, the report said.
The name change will bring Otis and Henry's restaurant and a Lone Wolf bar, both found in Isle's 15 self-branded and Lady Luck casinos in six states.
Isle purchased Rainbow in 2010 from Bally Technologies for $80 million.
No gaming-related details are listed in the report. Rainbow employs 284 people, according to data supplied to the Mississippi Gaming Commission.
Isle opened what is now DiamondJacks in 1993 and was Vicksburg's first casino. Rainbow opened in 1994.
