Ameristar Casino Hotel Vicksburg
Completes Expansion

VICKSBURG, MS - Ameristar Casino Vicksburg has completed its renovation and expansion project totaling approximately $10 million. The facility has enhanced and increased its amenities, and will open its newest entertainment offering, the Bottleneck Blues Bar on July 11.

The completed property enhancements include the expansion of the buffet; the installation of high definition plasma screens throughout the facility to broadcast special events; creation of a VIP players lounge; remodeling of the poker room and Overlook Bar; and new and expanded casino cages. In addition, the property also underwent a complete change in landscape design, which created a scenic gateway to the virtually new entertainment facility.

The nearly complete Bottleneck Blues Bar is an exciting new club providing great live entertainment. This jumpin' joint will offer a unique selection of regional cuisine, and will provide 11 big screen televisions for special event viewing. The Bottleneck Blues Bar will open on July 11 with Eddie Cotton and the Mississippi Cotton Club scheduled to perform at 8 p.m.

"We are pleased to announce the completion of this project,'' says General Manager Ray Neilsen. "With these enhancements and amenity additions in place, Ameristar will provide a new and

exciting environment for its guests. We have integrated EZ Pay into the casino, added a new VIP lounge, and will be offering a variety of well-known blues entertainers and authentic Southern cuisine selections in the new Bottleneck Blues Bar.''

Ameristar Casino Hotel Vicksburg, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ameristar Casinos, Inc., is a three-story gaming facility spread out over 42,000 square feet, and offers Vicksburg's only poker room. Blackjack, roulette, craps and Caribbean Stud are only a few popular gaming attractions to choose from. Situated on the top level are The River Town Cafe, the Veranda Buffet offering classic southern dishes, and the Waterfront Grill.

LAS VEGAS, NV - The Stratosphere Casino Hotel and Tower commemorated the opening of the first phase of its $75 million expansion project with a fireworks display on July 4, 2001 at 9:30 p.m. The twenty-minute display, comprised of 1,754 shells, launched from the roof of parking garage and was visible across the Las Vegas valley.
