Tropicana Changing Name to Bally

Tropicana Evansville’s name change is underway. 

The casino complex on Riverside Drive has begun marketing itself as Bally’s Evansville.

Bally’s completed its acquisition of Tropicana Evansville in June for $140 million.

The company also obtained rights to the Bally's name.

Bally's owns 13 casinos in nine states, a horse track, and 13 off-track betting licenses in Colorado.

Evansville’s land-based casino opened in 2017, after state law allowed riverboat casinos to move inland.

The local gaming operation began aboard the City of Evansville boat in 1995 and became a reliable revenue source for city and county government.
