Isle Of Capri Casinos, Inc. Provides Update On Mississippi River Flooding

ST. LOUIS, May 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Isle of Capri Casinos, Inc. (NASDAQ: ISLE) officials announced today the following update on the effects of Mississippi River flooding.

Water levels along the Mississippi River continue to fluctuate and the Company has been working closely with marine consultants, local and state officials and management staff to ensure the safety and security of its guests and employees, as well as secure company assets.

"We recently closed our properties in Caruthersville, Missouri, and Lula, Mississippi," said Virginia McDowell, president and chief executive officer. "Moving south, we have been working closely with officials from the City of Natchez and plan to close our casino on Sunday, May 8 unless circumstances change. We continue to face pressure in Vicksburg and we are continually monitoring conditions there. We have been in contact with our insurance carriers regarding property and business interruption claims."

On Sunday, May 1 the Company reopened its Davenport, Iowa facility after a 15 day closure as water levels receded there.
