The Argosy Gaming Co. will explain the impact of acquiring an Illinois riverboat casino in a news conference Thursday.

The Empress Joliet riverboat casino will become part of Argosy's other properties, which include the Lawrenceburg, Indiana and Dayton, Ohio markets.

Argosy bought the Empress Joliet for $465 million this past spring and plans to close the deal this fall.
