TREASURE ISLAND CASINO & BINGO ANNOUNCES IT HAS NO OFFICIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GARY'S TOURS; REGRETS MISREPRESENTATION BY WEST DES MOINES COMPANY

 WELCH, Minn., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Treasure Island Casino & Bingo has no official relationship with Gary's Tours of West Des Moines, Iowa and is working with Iowa Consumer Protection Division regarding monies paid to the tour operator which has to date not been refunded since the tours were canceled.
 John Hall, general manager of Treasure Island Casino & Bingo, said the Dec. 12-13, 1992 and Jan. 23-24, 1993 tours by Gary Michaels of Gary's Tours were never booked with the casino. Neither did Michaels notify Treasure Island of the cancellations. As of March 3, he has not scheduled new tours.
 "As in the case with any other casino, gaming establishment or entertainment destination, we are routinely and regularly contacted by tour operators offering to bring buses with guests to our establishment," Hall said.
 "We always clarify what our requirements are in terms of dates, times and costs and then require the tour operator to properly and fully inform guests as to the conditions of the tour.
 "We deeply regret that there was a misrepresentation in which Treasure Island was involved, although, through no fault on our part. Our foremost concern is always the welfare of each and every guest including those who arrive at our facility via bus tours. While we are very diligent in protecting the integrity of Treasure Island Casino & Bingo, there are unfortunate incidents such as this one in which we and potential guests are victimized."
