Penn National Gaming Names Anthony Carlucci General Manager Of Harrah’s St. Louis

Penn National Gaming, Inc. (Nasdaq: PENN) announced today that subject to customary regulatory approvals, Anthony Carlucci, 51, will serve as Vice President and General Manager of Harrah’s St. Louis upon the completion of Penn National’s acquisition of the facility, which is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2012. Mr. Carlucci currently serves as Vice President/General Manager of Penn National’s Hollywood Casino Tunica and the Company has commenced a search to fill the General Manager role at Hollywood Casino Tunica.

Penn National also announced the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (“HSR”), with respect to the proposed acquisition of Harrah’s St. Louis. Following the completion of the acquisition, Penn National intends to rebrand the property with its Hollywood-themed brand.

Over his nearly 30-year gaming industry career, Anthony Carlucci has held various management positions starting in 1982 at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. Carlucci moved within the Harrah’s organization and served as Director of Food and Beverage at Harrah’s Metropolis in southern Illinois from March 2001 to November 2002. He joined Argosy Gaming Company (which was acquired by Penn National in 2005) in November 2002 and served as Director of Operations at Empress Casino Hotel in Joliet, Illinois until 2007 when he was named Assistant General Manager of Boomtown Biloxi. Since October 2009 he has served as General Manager of Hollywood Casino Tunica. He is a registered Certified Public Accountant (in Maryland).

Thomas P. Burke, Senior Vice President Regional Operations of Penn National Gaming, commented, “Tony has been instrumental in Hollywood Casino Tunica’s financial and operational success since becoming the property’s General Manager nearly three years ago. He has expertly led his team through a number of economic, weather-related and competitive challenges while maintaining a strong focus on providing the customer service and experience our guests have come to expect. As such, we believe Tony is the ideal candidate to lead the planned addition of Harrah’s St. Louis into Penn National’s Hollywood family and build on the facility’s existing success and position in the attractive St. Louis market. Under Tony’s guidance, Penn National looks to work closely with Caesars, the existing local team and the community to ensure a seamless transition for our customers, vendors and Missouri regulators.”
