The Belle of Baton Rouge, a casino in the heart of that city's downtown area, will be sold as owner Tropicana Entertainment offloads casino properties in a $1.85 billion deal, The Advocate reports.

Among the casinos included in the deal are the Tropicana Laughlin Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City. Tropicana intends to dispose of the Aruba resort before closing.

Eldorado Resorts Inc. operates twenty properties in ten states, including Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. We believe the financing structure for the transaction, which includes the participation of a real estate investment trust, represents an innovative means to drive growth and add value for our shareholders while maintaining financial flexibility as we continue to own the majority of the underlying real estate across our remaining property portfolio.

Icahn said that when he acquired an interest in Tropicana in 2008, it was bankrupt yet undervalued.

This tremendous financial turnaround would not have been possible without it.

The transaction doesn't include Tropicana Aruba Resort.

Gaming and Leisure Properties said, upon completion of the deal, along with the previously announced transactions related to the acquisition of Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc.

Eldorado will acquire the operating assets of these properties and lease the real estate from Gaming and Leisure Properties through a new master lease with a 15 year initial term and four 5 year renewal periods.
