Tropicana intends to terminate the lease and discontinue its operation of River Palms in September 2014.

“We are pleased to announce this transaction today,” said Tony Rodio, president and chief executive officer for Tropicana. “We have had River Palms on the market for some time and upon the closing of this transaction and the discontinuance of our operation of River Palms in September 2014, we will be able to focus our Laughlin efforts exclusively on our flagship property – Tropicana Laughlin.”

Craig Estey, president of Nevada Restaurant Services said, “Nevada Restaurant Services is excited about the opportunity to operate the River Palms in the Laughlin market and looks forward to re-opening the facility quickly after a temporary closure while renovations and improvements are made to the property.”

In light of the September 3, 2014 closure, the company said, all customers at River Palms who are Trop Advantage club members and have earned benefits and rewards will be able to enjoy their rewards at Tropicana Laughlin Hotel & Casino. All benefits and rewards will be honored immediately.
