Tropicana Las Vegas to Close Today

Today, Bally's Corporation's Tropicana Las Vegas casino and hotel will be closing its doors at noon today (Pacific Time) and will be demolished to help build a baseball stadium for the Oakland Athletics.

The casino opened its doors in 1957 and has changed ownership numerous times over the nearly 70 years that it was in operation. Most recently, the property was purchased by Bally's Corporation in 2022 for $148 million.

When the property is demolished, the area on the south side of the Las Vegas Strip will be used to construct a 30,000-seat baseball stadium at an estimated cost fo $1.5 billion. The Oakland Athletics will then move from their current city of Oakland, California and begin playing at the stadium. It is expected that this will occur in 2028. Construction of that facility will begin in 2025.

Casino Listings News will be updating readers as news of the development commences.
