Casino Aztar, Evansville, owned and operated by the Phoenix-based Aztar Corporation, is located on an 841,848 square foot area at Riverfront Park on the Ohio River in downtown Evansville, Indiana. The $110 million entertainment facility includes a 2,700 passenger riverboat casino, a 250 room hotel, a 1,660 vehicle parking garage and Riverfront Pavilion housing pre-boarding facilities, retail shops, restaurants, and lounge area. Casino Aztar, Indiana's first casino riverboat, anticipates over two million visitors in the first year of operation.
The "City of Evansville" is the state of Indiana's first gaming riverboat under legislation passed in 1993. Built by Jeffboat in Jeffersonville, Indiana, the boat is a replica of the historic "Robert E. Lee" racing sidewheel steamboat crafted nearly 130 years ago. Jeffboat deployed 200 workers and spent over twelve months constructing the vessel. The exterior was designed by RA Stern, Inc. to appear as if the boat is straight from the Civil War era; the interior, designed by Morris & Brown Architects, Ltd., is purely Las Vegas glamour.
- Casino Aztar's Riverfront Pavilion is designed to reflect the turn-of-the-century charm of downtown Evansville. The interior feature building facades inspired by buildings that in the early 1900's graced Evansville's downtown riverfront. These facades were constructed from materials indigenous to this area. The streetscapes offer a multitude of textures and colors with a "park-like" central theme. This impressive complex houses a variety of dining and entertainment options. An enclosed walkway links the pavilion to a first-class 250 room hotel, complete with meeting and banquet facilities. A 7-story parking garage offers over 1,600 sheltered parking spaces with easy access to the casino, hotel, and pavilion.
- The boat is 310 feet long by 70 feet wide, has a depth of 14 feet by 6 inches and stands 80 feet above water level (including stacks). It weighs 1, 589 tons and has a maximum draft of 7 feet 6 inches.
- There is a total of 47,863 square feet of public space.
- Boat speed: 5 knots cruise, 10 knots top speed.
