KANSAS CITY, MO – The Kansas City Port Authority has given the go-ahead to Ameristar Casinos Inc. to purchase Station Casino Kansas City, a riverboat gambling facility based here, and the Station Casino gambling boat in St. Charles, just outside St. Louis, MO. Next week, it will be up to the Missouri Gaming Commission to give final approval of the $475 million transaction. Ameristar, based in Las Vegas, operates gambling casinos in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Vicksburg, MS, and Jackpot, NV.

The sale comes after Missouri Gaming Commissioners voted in August to revoke Station Casino’s Missouri licenses after company officials refused to testify under oath in an inquiry that surrounded Station lawyer Michael Lazaroff. If approved next week, by the Missouri Gaming Commission, Ameristar will take over operations Dec. 20.
