Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg is a casino in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, USA, in the Cincinnati metropolitan area. It is owned by Gaming and Leisure Properties and operated by Penn National Gaming.

History[edit]

The casino was originally named Argosy Casino, and was operated by Argosy Gaming Company, which was taken over in 2004 by Penn National Gaming, which operated casinos under the Hollywood brand.

In June 2009, Penn National unveiled a much larger riverboat with a passenger capacity of nearly 9,000 guests and 4,400 gaming positions. The new boat also marked the changeover from the Argosy brand to Hollywood. The new boat also features a rebranded World Poker Tour poker room, which will host a stop on the WPT in March 2010.[2][3]
