Caesars shows Showboat to ‘interested party’
ATLANTIC CITY (AP) — Caesars Entertainment is showing the soon-to-close Showboat Casino Hotel to “an interested party,” but won’t say who it is.
Company spokesman Gary Thompson tells The Associated Press that Caesars officials were showing the Showboat on Tuesday to a party that had expressed interest.
The casino is due to close on Sunday, one of three Atlantic City casinos shutting down over the next few weeks.
Thompson says Caesars continues to field inquiries from potential buyers.
The state’s Gaming Enforcement Division has already issued a closing order for Showboat, which is due to shut its doors at 4 p.m. Sunday.
It could not be determined if the potential buyer would be interested in the Showboat as a non-casino property after it is shut down.
