Argosy Gaming on Tuesday closed its purchase of the Empress Casino in Joilet for $465 million. Argosy bought the property from Horseshoe Gaming.

Purchasing the Empress allows Argosy “to compete in the dynamic Chicago market, the largest riverboat market in the country,” said James B. Perry, president and CEO.
