HARVEY, La., Aug. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boomtown Casino New Orleans announced a voluntary closure today as a precautionary measure as Tropical Storm Isaac approaches the Gulf Coast. The casino will close at 3:00 a.m. CST.
"The safety of our guests, our more than 700 team members and the West Bank community remains our primary focus," said Boomtown Vice President and General Manager Barry Regula. He adds, "With a hurricane warning now in place and a less than certain storm track, closing allows us to better prepare for the threat of strong winds and heavy rain."
Boomtown management will continue to monitor weather conditions and updates issued by the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority West and will re-open as soon as conditions indicate it is appropriate to do so.Updated property information will be posted at www.facebook.com/boomtownneworleans About Boomtown Casino New Orleans Boomtown New Orleans, located on the West Bank of the Mississippi in New Orleans and approximately 15 minutes from the French Quarter, opened in 1994 and features a 30,000-square-foot casino with more than 1,500 slot machines and 34 table games, including a live poker room and high limit slots and tables.
