About Ameristar Casinos, Inc.

Ameristar Casinos owned six casino hotels and two casinos. Properties included Ameristar St. Charles and Ameristar Kansas City (both in Missouri), Ameristar Black Hawk (Colorado), and The Jackpot Properties (Nevada). Ameristar Casino Vicksburg in Mississippi was a permanently docked riverboat casino on the Mississippi River, and Ameristar Casinos' Council Bluffs (Iowa) riverboat casino was located on the Missouri River. Ameristar's casinos offered slot machines (the majority of gaming sales), blackjack, craps, roulette, and poker. The casinos also included movie theaters, shops, entertainment arenas, restaurants, bars, and private clubs. In 2013 Ameristar was acquired and merged into Pinnacle Entertainment. Ameristar ceased to exist as a separate entity.
