ARGOSY GAMING ANNOUNCES OPENING OF ALTON BELLE CASINO II

 ALTON, Ill., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Argosy Gaming Company (NASDAQ-NMS: ARGY), operators of the Alton Belle Casino, the first riverboat gambling casino in Illinois, announced today the opening of the Alton Belle Casino II on Saturday, May 29. The new riverboat replaces the previous Alton Belle.
 The new tri-level cruise liner accommodates 1,200 patrons, compared to 490
on the former Belle and is three times larger than the previous casino. The Alton Belle Casino II has the interior design of a Las


Vegas casino, combining contemporary lighting, brightly colored carpeting, polished stone and mirrored surfaces and elements of Roman antiquity. The new cruise liner initially has 29 blackjack tables, four craps tables, two roulette wheels and a big six wheel. It also has more than 650 slot, video poker and keno machines.
 A new three-level landing facility, designed to moor the Alton Belle II, adds more than 37,000 square feet to the existing landing, and includes a sports and entertainment lounge, a VIP lounge, gift shop and kiosk food court. The new landing features a grand staircase as well as elevators, allowing patrons to enter and exit the new cruise liner from two different levels. It also has an enclosed ramp-way connecting the new vessel to the existing landing, which offers expanded restaurant and ticketing facilities.
 Argosy is evaluating alternative uses for the previous riverboat.
