CASINO MAGIC CEO COMMENTS ON CURRENT GULF COAST GAMING BUSINESS

 BAY SAINT LOUIS, Miss., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Marlin F. Torguson, president and chief executive officer of Casino Magic Corp. (NASDAQ-NMS: CMAG), said today, "We continue to be very pleased with the level of business at our Gulf Coast casinos. Net gaming revenues at our Bay Saint Louis casino totaled approximately $29.4 million for the two months ended May 31, 1993, and both April and May had higher gaming revenues than we've seen previously. With the successful opening of our new casino in Biloxi on June 5, we've just had by far the biggest volume weekend ever for Casino Magic.
 "We're finding that many of our customers are coming from greater distances to visit our casinos, and to take advantage of the outstanding recreational opportunities on the Gulf Coast. This is consistent with our expectations that increased casino activity in the area will serve to benefit the tourist and recreation industries, as well as the several companies with casinos open now, or about to open. This is why we are building our new Arnold Palmer-designed golf course and our destination resort hotel.
 "With the opening of Casino Magic Biloxi, we now operate two casinos on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with a total of more than 2,400 slot machines and more than 140 table games. In addition to being the biggest casino operator on the Gulf Coast, we are continuing our efforts to remain the best, and to provide our customers with a premier entertainment experience."
 Casino Magic said that results for the second quarter ending June 30 will be reported in August.
 Casino Magic Corp., a Minnesota corporation with principal offices in Bay Saint Louis, operates gaming casinos in Bay Saint Louis and Biloxi, Miss., and Deadwood, S.D.
 The common stock of Casino Magic Corp. is listed on the NASDAQ National Market System under the symbol CMAG.
