Ameristar Kansas City (formerly Station Casino Kansas City) is a hotel and casino located on the Missouri River in Kansas City, Missouri. It is owned by Gaming and Leisure Properties and operated by Pinnacle Entertainment.

The 15,000 sq ft (1,400 m2) casino has 2,800 slot and video poker machines, 57 table games, a live poker room with 15 poker tables, exclusive high-limit slot and table games areas, and a 184-room hotel that includes 36 mini and 12 king suites.[1]

History[edit]

The facility opened on January 16, 1997 as Station Casino. Ameristar Casinos acquired the property on December 19, 2000 and it was rebranded to its current name.

In August 2013, the property became part of Pinnacle Entertainment when that company acquired Ameristar Casinos.[2] In April 2016, the property was sold to Gaming and Leisure Properties along with almost all of Pinnacle's real estate assets, and leased back to Pinnacle.[3][4]
