AZTAR ANNOUNCES SELECTION FOR MISSOURI RIVERBOAT FACILITY

 PHOENIX, July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Aztar Corp. announced today that the City Council of Caruthersville, Mo., had voted to recommend to the Missouri Gaming Commission that Aztar be licensed to operate a riverboat gaming facility on the Mississippi River in Caruthersville.
 Aztar was selected by the City Council in a meeting on Saturday, July 10, 1993 following formal presentations. Proposals were submitted by six companies in response to the city's request for proposals. Caruthersville residents approved gaming in an election on June 8, 1993.
 Aztar also said the company has entered into an option to acquire 30 acres for the facility from a private party. The proposed facility will include a 25,000-square-foot casino with 900 slot machines and 30 table games. The total cost, including land, is expected to be approximately $30 million.
 The company noted that proceeding with the casino project is subject to receipt of a gaming license for the facility and resolution of other issues. An application for the license will be filed in the near future.
 Aztar is a publicly traded company that operates TropWorld Casino and Entertainment Resort in Atlantic City, N.J., the Tropicana Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, and the Ramada Express Hotel and Casino in Laughlin, Nev.
